Okay, I have to say it....it's GREAT to be an Auburn Tiger!!!! I am SO proud of the whole team and the tremendous effort they showed Monday night as they played the Oregon Ducks for the National Championship. It took until the very last second to secure victory, but what a game!!!!
My brother, who is currently a student at Auburn, called me after the game and told me how many people were rolling Toomer's Corner. He said that the whole downtown area was rolled and the police had to finally tell people to go home at 3 a.m.!!!! I am so glad that he is getting this chance to experience college football and it makes me so grateful to have gone to a school like Auburn.
People will continue to believe what they want about Cam Newton, but I really liked what he said during his interview last night after winning the game. He truly seems to be a man of God and believes that God is using him for His kingdom.
To me, Auburn is:
A place that sends a wonderful feeling down my spine as I drive into town
A place to drink the best lemonade on earth
A place that will forever remain steadfast in tradition
A place where I learned that work, hard work, will get me far in life
A place to stay out way past my bedtime
A place where I learned that I couldn't always live close to where I parked my car
A place to meet people who I feel like I've known my whole life
A place that believes in humility, honor, and serving others
A place that I think is one of the best places on earth
A place that considers me family
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I BELIEVE IN AUBURN AND LOVE IT!!!!
Till next time, let your light shine!
