Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that after last year’s win-less season, and four losses this season, my son’s 3rd/4th grade football team won their first game Saturday!!!

(Disclaimer: I don’t care two figs about football in general. And in kids’ sports, I’m a firm believer in the “winning isn’t everything” philosophy. But every team needs to win once in awhile, to keep their morale up.)

Those little guys were over the moon with joy. In the post-game talk, the coach even complimented my son on his 16-yard run with the ball. (My son isn’t usually one of the star players, so this was huge, too.)

As we headed for a celebratory lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant, I said, “Wow, what a great day! It must feel so good to win!”

Son said, “Yeah! So far ... this is the happiest day of my life.”
