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.
