A year after the terrible scandal that destroyed his marriage, Tiger Woods is re-prioritizing his life. First step: spending the upcoming holiday with his children, Sam and Charlie.
The one-year anniversary of Tiger Woods‘ Thanksgiving car crash — that was followed by his infidelity scandal and highly publicized divorce from Elin Nordegren — is a just few days away and he plans on spending it with his children, Sam, 3, and Charlie, 1½. “The kids and his mom will join him for Thanksgiving,” an insider tells Us magazine. Now, we already know that Tiger, 34, can whip up some macaroni and cheese, but can he prepare an entire Thanksgiving meal — turkey and all? We’re assuming Grandma, Kultida Woods, will be taking on that job!
Tiger, who says he is a changed man and a happier person since the incident, has re-evaluated his life and has realized that his kids are “Priority No. 1,” he told ESPN radio. When asked what he is thankful for this year — aside from putting his scandoulous past behind him — Tiger says, “I’m thankful to have my kids, to spend time with them to enjoy, to try to teach them something every day. That’s something my dad tried to do.”
For now, Tiger is working towards becoming a better man and proving to Sam and Charlie that they are the most important people in his life. “My dad always said to me love is a given but trust and respect are earned,” Tiger says about eventually being honest with his children about his scandalous liaisons. “It’s something I will have to earn, the trust and respect from my kids.”
