Featured Members IBO week ending 7-16-2016

Interesting week for me. For the first time in 14 years, I had more than a single day where both my sons, 14-year-old Max and 11-year-old Gus were away from home.

 

They both returned home safe (and tired) within the last 24 hours.

 

Max was gone for 5 nights to a church camp in Northern New Mexico and Gus was gone for 10 nights to a great boy scout adventure in San Diego.

 

The week before they left one of Gus’s fellow scouts had been killed in a car accident. Nothing nefarious but tragic nevertheless and it left an impact on 30 young friends just before they headed out for a long road trip.

 

I pretended like I wasn’t concerned in the least...

 

Besides the slightly unnerving silence a week without boys gave me a chance to reflect on how different life would have been without them.

 

Like many fathers, I am no doubt too critical about too little too often.

 

Still, I’m thankful that God gave me boys that most other people tell me are polite and respectful, rarely shy but rarely overbearing.

 

My kids motivate and inspire me in between bouts of confusing me and pissing me off. More than anything I love the fact that I’ve had the opportunity to be their dad.

 

I don’t know if you have children but if you do I encourage you to enjoy them. They grow up way too fast.

 

Just something to think about.

 

Meanwhile, on the IBO platform, we have lots of sons and daughters from a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and geographies.

 

Since January 18, 2014 I’ve been doing this weekly post of the members that were “featured” each day. Featured Members of the day - “FMOTD”’s for short...

 

It occurred to me at one point that “featured members” were among the people I most wanted to associate with and I wanted to know every single one of them - BUT - there wasn’t a source for the data of WHO had been featured each day so…

 

I created it.

 

I encourage you to check back every  week to see who was “featured” each day - but if you miss a week (or more) - rest assured I have the list...

 

You can “click through” and see each FMOTD’s traffic numbers, how many times they’ve been featured, when they joined IBO, how many “likes” they’ve received, how many times they have posted on the wall, how many videos and how many press releases they’ve done.

 

For this last week, here is my “review/recap” of the IBO featured members of the day.
