I am very impressed with my nephew, Griffin. He is not the biggest person on his high school cross country team. Nor is he the fastest, strongest or most buff.
But Griffin may be the most determined. He expects a lot of himself, he perseveres tirelessly, he aspires to be the best. In a team full of champions, he puts his head down, keeps his ego in check, and does work.
And that is why my nephew Griffin makes me a very proud aunt.
