“Be grateful for nothing.”

        – Marcus Rashford

Professional Football Player

Be grateful for nothing.  That’s what Marcus, a successful soccer player said!  What could that mean?  


Well, Marcus grew up with nothing…. so he is grateful when he has nothing!  His family focused on friendships and time shared together. So having nothing — meaning material possessions — was ok with him.   


Sports and collaboration!  


Mealtimes and conversations with family and friends… 


Music, joy and celebration!  


What Marcus Rashford taught us was to cherish life through the lens of people and also experiences.  So many people today relate to the fact that they don’t want things but they want experiences.  That’s wonderful.  What are you focusing on today?  Are you hoping to get a home, a second home, a third home?  Do you want a boat?  Do you want that shining motorcycle?  That’s okay  – but you can also think about all the wonderful things you have available to yourself which are free:  Family, friends, sports, music, experiences.  That’s the richness of life.

Thank You for Living and Giving,



Marcus Rashford is a professional footballer from England. In his first-team debut in the UEFA Europa League, the young footballer scored a goal, followed by another one in his first \’Premier League\’ appearance against \’Arsenal\’ in February 2016. In his debut in the \’Manchester Derby match,\’ the \’League Cup,\’ and the \’UEFA Champions League he continued his streak of scoring goals as well.

Marcus, the \”wonder kid\” of the English football league, has been a star since an early age in hitting his opponents with strong shots. He was just five when he began playing the sport, and by the time his age was seven, he was already working his way into the prestigious club \’Manchester United\’ academy system.

He has played for \’Under-16,\’ \’Under-18,\’ \’Under-20,\’ and \’Under-21\’ before beginning his senior career as a forward for \’Manchester United.\’ In May 2016, Marcus also became England\’s youngest player to score as a senior in his first international match. In almost all of his matches, his mind-blowing results helped him get picked for the \’UEFA Euro 2016.\’
