For the Love
of the sport
one of the greatest joys in my life is watching my daughter do what she loves most...gymnastics. i love watching her flip around, but most of all i love the smile on her face while she is in the gym. she is happy there, really happy! she is excited for every practice like its the very first one. she works so hard for every new skill she learns and embraces conditioning because she knows it will make her stronger and better. her competition season is about to begin and she is ready. she is ready to shine and show us what she has worked so hard for, that this sport is hers and always will be.
it is the most nerve racking and emotional sport to watch, but she is always calm and collected on the competition floor. as i watch her i always have tears in my eyes and warmth in my heart. the struggles she has faced in life come to a screeching halt because she holds her own with confidence and poise that most adults can not display. she makes us believe that we can do anything if we only believe.
she has found her gift and i have found mine. a happy heart, a healthy child, and a beautiful sport that fills our lives with joy. thank you to the unexpected miracles that change our lives forever.

where has the time gone?? we had a jam packed super crazy summer up here in the last frontier. it was one of the warmest, sunniest, and beautiful summers i can recall.
sports, time in our travel home, work, a visit from family, growing lettuce and doing laundry at the rv park is what our summer consisted of.
the start of the school year looked completely different for our family. the transition to middle school for one and home school for the other has gone pretty darn smooth. my little ones are happy and content with their new learning environments.
as i love this little space i call believe, i am so frustrated that i fail to have the time to create, write, share. this time in my life is sometimes overwhelming, but i am searching for my own time to do the things i love, and still provide for my sweet family.
my new year starts today and one of my items on the list is to bring more to this space.
lots of love
