I went to the Vancouver/Nashville game on Tuesday night and I was hoping that Henrik Sedin would score his thousandth point, but he waited for tonight to do it. And it was worth waiting for!
It was a beautiful goal against his former teammate, Roberto Luongo and the Florida Panthers. It was very exciting and Corinna and I felt very privileged to have witnessed it. His whole team came out to congratulate him!
He got a two or three minute standing ovation, and as usual, he was very humble. He seems like a very classy gentleman. I met him in New York in 2004 but I was extremely starstruck!
There was a congratulatory video at the first television time-out and it was very well done.
The girls behind us brought these cardboard letters and they were on the big screen a couple of times. They were very happy to pose for me at the end of the game. Such a fun night and a great way to start off a weekend!
I am a wife, a mother, a friend. I own and operate my own family business, a licensed daycare in my home. I often say that I don't really work, which I don't, I play. Rod Black once said that if you choose a career you love, then you never have to work a day in your life. I know that I have done that. Children fascinate me, they have very intriguing behaviours and although I often think I need to evolve past the age of 5, I keep coming back to take care of all the little children. They are the lights of my life, and they help to make my life complete.
