FEBRUARY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!
It is in the time of loss that you realize that each day is a gift. Each day that you have those you love in your life is truly a gift. Just the other day I was reading a quote from Barbara De Angelis: “Love and Kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who received them, and they bless you the giver.”
This past year has been a difficult time in the sport of drag racing for the John Force Racing Team and Doug Herbert as well. They have lost those who they love. It especially true of Doug Herbert who suffered the largest loss of his two children.
If nothing else I would inspire you to be thankful for those who are in your life and truly appreciate them. For those of you who travel the racing circuit or keep up with the NHRA circuit I am sure that John Force Racing and Doug Herbert, along with the many other racers who have suffered losses, will appreciate your prayers and kindness. You will make a difference by sending a simple card or kind words of inspiration during these difficult times.
