3 Amigos met Dolph at The Fort this morning for another Nomads journey. There was a moment when the amigos arrival was questioned as an owl swooped down in front of the windshield of Def Leppard’s momma’s car on the interstate. The reaction of all three will not be told but we shield-locked and pushed on.
Whatdid(his F3 name! should’ve got the story on that) did a great job today. We talked afterwards and he explained how he really put the effort into preparing for anything. He had cones and various things laid out throughout the area ready for a beatdown. The one thing he wasn’t expecting was 40 HIMS showing up. Knowing we couldn’t run his workout with that number he modified and did a great job of it. I feel like we could’ve done a few more merkins though! Whatdid spoke about the theme of the month being hope. Great words indeed. Great group of guys down at The Fort! I felt I was among my people with all the mummblechatter.
Slaw has continued to amaze me on these trips showing his skill for movie line memory. I can’t remember what we watched from the redbox last week but this guy is throwing out lines from The Three Amigos like it just came out yesterday. Don’t get me wrong I loved that movie in the 2nd grade back in the 80’s but I don’t remember much about it. The ride home went smooth(Dolph good luck on your work project today) thanks to Def Leppard’s M’s sunglasses. A guy as cool as you can pull of anything.
Hope- I feel like The Lord has been speaking to me a lot about this lately. Every time I turn around something comes up. Whether it’s about hope, struggle, or suffering. We all have struggles. We as F3 men have each other to lean on to get through these times but there are so many that don’t have that in their life. Take a moment to talk to people and see whats going on with them. It doesn’t always have to be an EH to a workout. That may not be what they need. As we say it’s more than just a workout! See if there is some way you can help create hope in someone’s life. Without hope what’s the point. I believe it was Billy Graham that said I have read the end of the Bible it’s going to be all right!
