Hailey, Aubrey, myself and Beau were having a great time pretending to be figure skaters and goofing around. Oh to be care free! I’ll be honest, I was a little worried about my skating ability. After all, I have only been once in the past five years and Beau plays hockey. No contest. But hey, I didn’t do too bad! There were many much, much better then me… but I wasn’t the worst skater out there either. In the middle of one of our laps, something caught Beau’s attention. He told me to catch up to Aubrey and Hailey and he’d meet up with us in a minute. I did. We made our way around the loop and when we caught up to the place Beau had left me, this is what we saw:
I dang near melted on the ice. This nice guy’s name was CJ and it was his first time skating EVER. When Beau spotted him he was clinging to the wall for dear life, but with a smile. Beau immediately helped him, and continued to coach him throughout the evening. I lost count of how many times I heard CJ tell Beau “Thank you! Thank you so much!” in his thick, African accent.
This is one of the many reason’s I love this guy.
This is a repeat song, but it’s worth a repeat.
