Ladies and gentlemen, that is how you do it!
A Very Cool Story: Keven Durant recently provided a speech after receiving the 2014 Most Valuable Player Award from the NBA. Let’s just say it was one of the most emotional speeches I have ever seen, and I have seen way too many. The crux of what he said could be summed up when he said, “When something good happens to you, I don’t know about you guys, but I tend to took back to what brought me here.” He then preceded to cry, thank teammates, friends and members of his family. He used the word love about 200 times in 27 minutes. He was vulnerable, sensitive and he gave every ounce of credit to others in his life. I would say that he is a great role model deserving of a spot in the book. But enough from me, just watch the video.

After you stop crying, think about what you did for your mother on Mother’s Day. Did it look anything like this? Does your mother know how much you love and appreciate her? What can you do to show her?
