Day 44. Without much to report on the end of Grammy related finds, I am happy to share a video of my oldest son playing one of his favorite sports. Over the years we’ve become involved with various soccer leagues and on the weekends we look forward to Soccer Saturday!!  Watching my son today was fulfilling for us all, as he’s always played in leagues with older children where he was the younger by 2 -3 years, which makes a big difference in the level of competition. It was very frustrating for him as well as for us to see him try so hard and exert so much effort game after game and not quite get the reward or the goal or sometimes the win. He felt like quitting many times and doubted himself as well. He’s always had the tools and the skills, but he didn’t always use them to his advantage until the “on” switch was flicked. His goal was to get the GOAL!. Be the best. A lesson I TOO must take to heart about my goals. Despite my own frustrations and obstacles, I mustn’t stop shooting to make a goal. The more grass stains the better.
