In the daily process of making a living, it is important to remember why you are working so hard. Your family needs the income you provide but your family also needs you. Finding a balance between the two is key. If you don't remind yourself on your own, sometimes in the midst of all that hard work something happens to a member of your family that brings everything into focus; it immediately strengthens your priorities.
This is what happened to Brenda Frese, the head coach for the University of Maryland's women's basketball team. I don't read the sports section of the newspaper every day as I do other sections but this story about Brenda Frese jumped out for me and I read it from beginning to end. Frese has coached at Maryland for 10 years, won the Women's NCAA championship in 2006 and is married with two little boys. In her 2008-2009 season at Maryland, Frese also won the ACC Championship-the women's first since 1989.
I found her family's story to be so inspirational and I hope you do to!! Good luck Tyler and keep up the good fight! The Frese/Thomas family is in our prayers. This link will take you to the Washington Post story:
