Greg 'n Keetha Stuff

OK, let's be honest. This is really KEETHA stuff. Sometimes I write about Greg - - - but he has never in his life made one single post of his own. He has occasionally made a comment or two. So - - - come on in and visit with me, Keetha, for a while. I'd love it if you left your foot prints. (Interpretation: COMMENT PLEASE ;-)

A Touch of Class


Which is making tears roll down my cheeks.

Venus and Serena Williams played each other today for the Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Tennis Championship. And oh how they played.

These ladies are all class.

Considering I can barely hold a racket, my admiration for them knows no bounds.

It was Venus who was victor today, winning her 5th Wimbledon final. But I think what endeared her to me the most was the way she put her relationship to her sister over her accomplishment. Truly touching.

Serena is also a star in my book.

I think because of their prowess as well as their attitudes these are the top two female athletes in the world.

Forget Britney Spear's mother - I would like Serena & Venus' mother to sit down with Peyton & Eli's mother, Oliva, and write a parenting book.

Now that would be a best seller!

I didn't get to see them play but I kept thinking about their family and wondering how they feel during the matches. Either way the family wins but it would be a strange position to be in - cheering for both at the same time.

A little insight - maybe - into how God feels about us. Cheering us ALL on to win. No favorites. Just loving all of us on to victory!

Cool thoughts, Kathy.

In the postgame interview the reported asked Venus if it isn't very difficult on their mother to watch them play each other and how does she know which one to cheer for. Venus grinned and said, "I always think she wants ME to win." It was a very cute/sweet moment.
