Tenacity – How many time will you pull yourself back-up?

Tonight at cheer Emily and her team practiced lifting one of them of the floor. I’m sure their is a term for it but what I saw was my girl holding her friend in her arms with the help of her coaches.

Em was exhausted, this was difficult and not fun at all. She wanted to stop doing this and just go home…

I don’t care what the outside world think…..  ok, that’s not true, I do care!  I hope the whole world could see that she is my hero, my personal life coach, that she has overcome so much in her life …..

A 3 year old taught me…
