50. "Mamba Out"

Jody & Judie Sedrick published on


We along with the rest of the world were sucker-punched with the news of the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and 7 others in a horrible plane crash on January 26, 2020.  Our hearts are heavy thinking about the families who lost their loved ones so unexpectedly. Life can really throw you some unexpected curves. We thought we'd share some of our thoughts and even an indirect personal experience with Kobe. 

  • The unexpected and unknowns of life

  • Pondering our own mortality and how we are serving our family and others

  • Moments can be upsetting but are they truly important

  • The power of an indirect association with someone can have a powerful impact on your life

  • Jody’s personal experience Kobe at a Volleyball tournament

  • We’re all just people

  • We are not in the limelight but people can be watching the example we are setting

  • Kobe’s first time facing Michael Jordon

  • Crab Syndrome

  • Kevin Hart - Every time I succeed I see new opportunities

  • View competition and obstacles as stepping blocks to propel you to be better

  • Date Night Lessons learned Go-Kart racing chasing the pros

  • Our condolences and love to all of the families that lost loved ones in the crash
