Teammates

I’m tired of driving, recruiting, managing, paying, sweating, emailing, directing, hoping, stressing, accommodating, registering, calendaring, hosting and losing.  Our two week club shutdown came at exactly the right time.  But every time I wonder if it’s all worth it, something happens to remind me why I do what I do.  This time, it was a simple sleep over invitation.  When my girls asked to invite friends over, they automatically each picked a soccer teammate.  Those friendships, nurtured on and off the field, give my girls so much joy.  Of course they have school friends and other friends, but teammates have a special bond.  They never need a break.
