2017 National Championships USA Hockey

(Originally Posted on 04/08/17)

Baseball season has opened. Spring has started, but not yet sprung. Then there are still some prominent New Hampshire high school hockey players still playing hockey. They are playing at National Championships in places like East Lansing and Lansing, Michigan, as well as Dallas and Plano, Texas. They are playing against competition from all over the country.


As you may, or may not, know, I have a passion for covering hockey here. Especially, Goffstown High School hockey, but also much about hockey in New Hampshire. So, these National Championships are full of high school players from around the country, including NH. Goffstown High School is represented by Nick Nault and Noah Charron on the NH Avalanche 18U team, and Griffin Cook on the Manchester Flames 16U team.

Disclaimer: Okay, HockeyTV has not yet embraced the idea of offering/sharing clips and highlights for free, as a selling point to get more subscriptions to watch live games. So, it would cost some money to watch games, highlights, clips, etc.

Believe it or not, you can watch these games online. Register with HockeyTV, subscribe (it does cost something), and you will have access to any games you want, in any of the sites. My profile on HockeyTV is 1inawesomewonder. You can follow me on the site if you subscribe, and I have compiled video clips, or highlights of the goals scored by the NH Avalanche 18u team and by the Manchester Flames 16u teams during game play on Thursday, April 6th and Friday, April 7th. I could post the links to each video, but you cannot see them without a subscription. If you have a subscription with HockeyTV, then you can follow me, and see the clips to all of the goals.

For example:


The NH Avalanche 18U team is playing in Michigan.

 

The Manchester Flames 16U team is playing in Texas.

It’s Been a Year Dad: Lessen or Lesson

It’s been a year now, 12 whole months since a life here expired. I remember the weeks leading to the day that we all knew would come sometime. There was so much support, many prayers and efforts, regardless of being tired. Amid the details though, it wasn’t too difficult, a beautiful love, to find.

Lights

The Northern Lights forecast that I check periodically.

Late on the evening of March 29, 2017, somewhere around 11:00 pm, I was compelled to check a website that I check off and on, throughout the year. I am not sure why I was prompted to check this site on that night but I did. Continue reading

Fortress

Sometimes, God sees fit to place us, from birth, in the care of a mother who will spend the rest of her days mastering the skill of motherhood. These mothers, they never stop learning, all the while, they teach and perpetually apply a lifetime of lessons. Then, as life meanders speedily along, and it takes us wherever we may roam, these mothers, they are somehow always right where we need them to be. They are steady. They are strong. They are safe. They are immense, while remaining the softest place to land. They are bold. They are patient. They bite their tongues long enough for us to learn our own way. They have our backs just because we ask them to. They hurt for us more than we do. They worry for us more than we do. And as we travel through the ups and downs, they are always there for us, they are our fortress.
