Ten girls, one ball, and 2 refs on the court, and oh so many moms, dads, grandparents, aunt, uncles…. well, you get the picture.
It is an absolute pure joy to see how confident Cat has become. The first game, the first time she stepped on the court she was a bundle of nerves. And so was I. Sitting in the stands, I wanted to run down the bleachers and tell her it was alright. I didn’t. I knew she would eventually calm down and be alright. And so would I.
Tonight, she played strong. And I felt strong.
Tonight, she smiled and laughed. And I smiled and laughed.
Tonight, I had a glimpse of the young woman she will grow into…
And I am blessed.
