Absolutely don't know how to play the ball myself. Hardly know the rules. Don't ever watch the games on TV.
But witnessing the joy, dedication, willpower, friendship, aspiration, shape and focus my 14 year old daughter gains, and has gained, every single day since the age of six, and hopefully many many more years to come, I cannot help absolutely loving that game.
Being passionate about something is a gift. I am absolutely grateful that she gets to experience that feeling.
Received an invitation today to a meeting with the coach, at the new club she's being tested for.
Going there tomorrow...
