For Love of the Game!
My 10year old Natania broke her big toe a few days ago, it swelled up, and has a nasty bruise but she insisted on going to her last soccer game. She just loves to play SOCCER! She told me she would go and only play a little bit or cheer her team on. Well there is no keeping her down. She played her heart out, all 4 quarters. She just limped around and tried to remember to kick with the opposite foot, but that didn't last for long. I cringed everytime players came near her, for fear they would step on her sore foot. This was actually one of her best games. Unfortunately, I forgot the camera and missed some of the best photo op's this season. She was willing to risk more injury to her foot for love of the game - SOCCER!!! Now if she could just put that determination into her school work.
