Hello SparkMembers!

I'm back to try to spark your week. I really enjoyed finding this week's motivational quote:

"Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone's face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come."
-- Henri Nouwen

This is a good one to think about some of the more important things you can do in a day to make your life meaningful.

Weekly Highlight

Last week, I mentioned that our family was getting ready to see the San Jose Earthquakes play FC Cincinnati in an MLS soccer game. We had a good time. The Earthquakes won 1-0. One of the highlights was meeting Krazy George, a professional cheerleader with a colorful history. My wife remembers Krazy George from her childhood when she went to the Earthquakes games with her father and brother. George even invented the wave that people do in stadiums with fans standing up and raising their hands one section at a time around the stadium. ESPN did a feature on this about 10 years ago if you are interested in seeing the first planned wave (this was after he started this by accident at an NHL game prior to this and knew he was onto something):

If the video doesn't work, here is a direct link:

I like sharing Krazy George with you because he's such a positive person and has turned his passion into a career. His book was fun to read.

Did you have any highlights this week? If so, let me know below or share what you think about this quote.
