"Sports Illustrated"

Have you ever worked hard, hoping someone would notice your achievements, but no one did?

I have a friend who is a high school football coach. One morning, as he was dressing to go to school, the phone rang. His wife said it was "Sports Illustrated." He was thrilled. He had just finished his third consecutive successful season and finally his efforts had come to the notice of that herald of truth, "Sports Illustrated." He gathered his thoughts and went to the phone. The person on the other end asked him to confirm his name and then said, " You can renew your subscription today for a special deal of only $29.95."

When disappointment happens to us, we need to do what my friend did. He laughed, got dressed, and went to work.
