I was thinking today about all of the things I have to be grateful for. Even though it is a cold, rainy day in Santa Monica, it is not snowing (sorry, friends and family to the north!).
My daughter defended her world title yesterday in record time and came out unscathed.
We had many family members come to watch the fight and visit with us afterward. My extended family gets along well enough to come visit, a luxury many people do not have.
Old friends came out to see Ronda win this weekend, guys like Lanny Clark, Jerry Hays, Steve Seck , Blinky Elizalde, Jake Flores and Gary Butts who I have known through so many years and times good and bad, you cannot even imagine.
My lovely daughters all support one another. We have no "family drama" and I am well aware that is a statement many people cannot make.
I have work that I'm excited to do and judo students I'm excited to teach. This week, I will be getting back to both of them.
