“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

Dear Kid,

Volleyball College studentsYou are sitting at the kitchen table finishing up homework. I know you are not happy with the way you played volleyball tonight, but as far as I could see you have nothing to be upset about.

Maybe that’s just mom eyes. I think I watched the games sets pretty carefully (and yes, I’m still learning the correct terminology). The thing is you are playing an entirely new sport (new for you, I mean) and I am so impressed with the attitude you have about trying and learning and being positive (except for right now).

You are a team player in the truest sense of the term. And I couldn’t be more proud.

Love, Mom
