Every now and then I read something that simply warms the cockles of my heart. An article appeared in the Atlanta Journal, Sports section, March 28, about a young man, Jason Heyward, who made the Braves team and will be playing right fielder, opening day.
As you read about Jason’s family and their reaction to their son’s success, you get the sense that this is a pretty tight family with loads of values. Conversations end with phrases like “Love you, Dad”.
Hitting coach Terry Pendleton said to Jason’s father, “You have done an excellent job with that young man”. Those are words that all parents like to hear. But the best comment came from Jason’s grandfather who said many times to this young man growing up, “Manners take you where money won’t!”
What a quote and certainly one…that Makes Momma Happy!
