Ran across an article this morning that was a tribute to Former OU Basketball Great, Wayman Tisdale. Toby Keith has written a tribute song and produced a video for the song. After watching this and getting a little teary eyed, I found myself thinking about how people impact our lives.
Now Wayman was at OU when I was a teenage boy in high school. I know it’s hard to believe that a teenage boy would be influenced by a college athlete, but hey, I didn’t realize it at the time. I guess, I haven’t really realized it until this morning as I was watching this video. I have heard lots of times that you really never know who is watching and that you should set an example everywhere, all the time.
Just watching the video and seeing Wayman’s infectious smile and listening to the words of the song made me start thinking about what would MY tribute song and video be like. Would anyone really want to do a song and video? The answers to these questions are still being written and I hope that they are many, many years away from being answered.
But they are questions that we all should consider as we go through life and remember that each time we interact with another person we are impacting that life in some way. Do you want that impact to be positive or negative is the question.
Here is the link to the article and video Cryin' For Me, listen to the words of the song.
Enjoy and have a blessed day.
