Once everyone started playing again, a teammate would either go for the ball and miss it… which let him to get the ball instead. Or they would accidentally pass it to him, instead of someone else. This allowed him and a teammate to hit the ball back and forth to each other, all the way down the field. They got to the net and everyone, on both teams, yelled for him to shoot…. He did and scored the team’s first and only goal of the day! He felt like superman and was over the moon happy, beaming from ear to ear. My heart is happy and I may admit to crying a few tears of joy, as I watched all of this unfold from the sidelines of the field.
Today at school, my kids taught me kindness, compassion, generosity and empathy. They taught me that sometimes you have to stop thinking, and just go where your heart takes you. I am in awe of what amazing kids they already are, and what exceptional people they will continue, to grow up, to become.
