Thanks for sharing this insight. It gives me new perspective on my interactions
with my family.
Article quote: "I cry not because she's going to come in
first. I cry not because she's a future Olympian or scholarship
recipient.I cry because she's healthy; she's strong;
she's capable.And I cry because I love to watch her
swim."I can relate.I have a 16 yr old son who has
tried football, baseball, basketball and soccer. He's best at soccer.
He's also in the band, where he plays trumpet. But last year he marched in
his school's marching band for the first time. Not playing trumpet, but
playing one of the band's 5 bass drums. I saw him sitting in
the stands playing at a home football game, absolutely waaaaaailing away on his
drum, with this huge smile on his face, and it made me smile just to see him so
happy.He's a physical kid, and loves to use his body to do
things, and just the sight of him, not more than 20 feet away, putting all his
body and energy into smacking that drum, with such precision with the other
percussionists, made me smile.I'm gonna tell him this.
Nicely told. God bless us to do the same with our marriages and families too.
I love reading what you wrote. I love that someone decided to put it in the
Beautiful. I'm going to try this with my daughter after her next game.
