Earlier this morning, I was browsing a message board for our local wrestling community here in Iowa and I came across a thread asking for prayers for one of our youth wrestlers. Unfortunately, tragic circumstances have struck another family that has a wrestler at Noah's age and weight. Actually, Ryan is a year younger than Noah, but he and his twin brother, Logan, are quite the opponents. We met up against Ryan on his home turf last year and Noah had a very tough match against him. This morning, I found out he has been diagnosed with leukemia. It just breaks my heart. Why do these things happen???

Ryan is to the left of Noah.
Yeah. There's perspective for you.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ryan's family and the wrestling community at Beckman. We pray that Ryan will beat leukemia with the same determination and ferocity that he beats his opponents on the mat.
And because I promised Kammy I would post the before and afters of the bowl and pitcher I bought last week...
A little spray paint and a little glaze can do wonders. Kammy... You can keep your $7.50. I think it's a keeper. :)
Now, off to accomplish something today, with thoughts and prayers for the Burchard family running through my head.
