I don't want to brag or anything but I sort of have something in common with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
I mean, they were two of our country's best Presidents and they were both revered leaders and great thinkers plus, each has his likeness on currency and etched into the side of a mountain.
Me? I'm the best President...in my immediate family...of the High School Swim/Dive Team Boosters...this year. Okay, fine, I'm the only President of the HS swim/dive boosters this year; are you happy now? And my face isn't any place prominent ... thank the good Lord.
Besides, I'm pretty sure I am the worst President in the history of the association; aiming high to do everything right but falling short in all the key categories. I mean, I've meant well and tried hard but, overall I'm lucky they don't normally impeach volunteer heads of swim/dive boosters, Capisce? #HotMessPrez
Let's face it; I'm no George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. No wonder they get a special day and pk doesn't. #PresidentsDay
But, like them, I do have a fierce love of God, country, my fellow man and a desire for the United States to be the best, fairest, most fabulous nation it can be. And, also like them, I'm a working President, too (I time every meet possible!). So there's that.
And though I likely wasn't the best commander-in-chief (not for lack of trying!); I DO make a mean pan of homemade mac and cheese. #AskTheKids More importantly, I couldn't have possibly loved the swim/dive family any more. I surely will miss them all next year --- when they will obviously have someone far more capable in charge. We've got a few final events left (most notably our State tournament) under my administration and I'll try diligently not to entirely screw them up. #HangInThereBoardMembers
The one thing I know I did perfectly was to support this incredible team of athletes; all of whom Mama K adores from the bottom of her heart.
Lv 19:1-2, 11-18 The LORD said to Moses, "Speak to the whole assembly of the children of Israel and tell them: Be holy, for I, the LORD, your God, am holy. "You shall not steal. You shall not lie or speak falsely to one another. You shall not swear falsely by my name, thus profaning the name of your God. I am the LORD. "You shall not defraud or rob your neighbor. You shall not withhold overnight the wages of your day laborer. You shall not curse the deaf, or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but you shall fear your God. I am the LORD. "You shall not act dishonestly in rendering judgment. Show neither partiality to the weak nor deference to the mighty, but judge your fellow men justly. You shall not go about spreading slander among your kin; nor shall you stand by idly when your neighbor's life is at stake. I am the LORD. "You shall not bear hatred for your brother in your heart. Though you may have to reprove him, do not incur sin because of him. Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your fellow countrymen. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
