(catching up on Daily Grats…)
Maria had a gymnastics meet Saturday night in South Arlington. It was her first in several months and in a new gymnastics league.
She did *great.* She had her best overall meet ever, and did very well in every event.
What I was pleased by, though, was how confident and unworried she was about it. She just seemed to be having fun, and trying hard…and it showed. Not putting too much pressure on herself….just “doing it.”
So, I am so proud, and so grateful, for Maria the Gymnast.
(During this year, my goal is to find something new to be thankful for every single day, and to add that thanksgiving as a blog entry, under the title “My Daily Gratitude.” I started this kick back around Thanksgiving, and it’s already resulted in a favorite new song of mine. The goal of this ongoing spiritual exercise is to see if doing such a thing might inspire even more gratitude within me, and to foster general awareness of life on a deeper level.)
