As a parent I feel I have an awesome responsibility to encourage my children and build up their dreams in them as much as I possibly can. To this end, my husband and I are always finding motivational and inspirational things to show the boys so they can see that anything is possible if you never give up and keep on believing in your dream. Right now, Ethan's dream is to play NFL football...with the Green Bay Packers (don't gag on your coffee this morning, Becks!) and, well, while it might not be the most realistic of dreams, if it's something he wants I am 110% behind him. But he is also learning just how hard you have to for work it. (Just ask him about his first practice as quarterback and he'll tell you!)
So when I came across this clip from Britain's Got Talent (another Simon Cowell program) on Kirsty Wiseman's blog yesterday, I immediately called Ethan and my husband in my office to watch it. I was moved to tears because THIS was someone who never gave up and because of that was finally seeing her dream realized....after she had it in her heart to do since she was 12. She's now 47.
