I attended my son’s first basketball game recently. As I watched these little guys in their oversized shirts stuffed into long baggy shorts, I was hopeful.
They had fun. They played hard. They were good sports. They tried their best. They learned some lessons, too.
They learned that you don’t always get the ball. They learned that sometimes you can make mistakes, but you are expected to keep playing and not quit. They learned that if you fall down, people care, but they want you to get up and keep going.
I saw some pretty amazing feats by a bunch of little kids. I saw a little girl; amongst all the boys take the ball down court while trying to keep her shorts on. She succeeded in keeping her pants on, but didn’t quite make the shot.
The other thing she was successful at was keeping up. She didn’t quit. She didn’t give up and she didn’t fall to pieces. She took care of business with a smile. This girl is going to be successful in life.
She was able to roll with the punches and keep her game face on. I have no idea who she is, but I loved this little girl.
