Fast forward several years to a conversation we had with Spencer just a few weeks before August 6, 2011. Dale was telling Spencer goodbye, and Spencer said, “I know, Dad. Make it count.” And then he did.
Making it count is about recognizing we have gifts and abilities that are to be used to benefit others. Making it count is about doing our best, even when it is so much easier to shoot for mediocrity. Making it count is about seeing more than just ourselves and understanding the part we play in helping others see more than just themselves.
