I just witnessed the greatest comeback of the season.
The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants tied 31 points each. Fourteen seconds remained on the clock.
The Giants rookie punter, Matt Dodge, entered the game with instructions to kick it out of bounds to take the crucial game into overtime. The game that would decide the winner of the Division in the NFC East.
My husband is not one of those people.
And like Jackson, I did recover.
It has been a long six months and I continue to scramble towards my own end zone. I still sometimes stumble but with the help of some amazing blockers I have been able to recover my footing and keep running.
We all make mistakes, some bigger than others, but it is how we choose to handle the fall out from our mistakes that separates the quintessential "men from the boys."
When interviewed by Fox Correspondent, Pam Oliver, Jackson was still so flustered that he said, "I have no words. I fumbled the ball. I don't even know what I was doing out there."
Yes, he fumbled the ball and but he recovered and got the job done. It's like that with a supportive team, all things are possible, and I am so thankful for mine. They never counted me out.
I only hope Matt Dodge has someone who believes in him as much, because for him, tomorrow is going to be rough day.
