Everyday is a blessing! I love waking up and going to work!
...Especially when I know these boys are coming in!
As I posted a few months ago, my friend Tim and I began a program together where some of his boys from Abraxis come to Alpha once a week, where they clean and help out around the gym in different areas, and afterwards they come together and participate in a workout.
They try to keep the same consistent group of respectful young men coming each time, although sometimes things may need to change.
Yesterday happened to be the last day for two of these young men. They have completed their time and done what they needed to do in order to go back home.
••••• At the end of our time together yesterday, they presented me with this.
I assure you, this means more to me than any of them will ever know. Probably more to me than any award I’ve ever received.
To me it represents Acceptance, Respect, and Unity. The exact culture I’m proud of at Alpha. ...Sometimes people just need a chance. - 58 minutes ago
