Day 327

Day 327

Thanksgiving Day.

I have so much to be thankful for.

But this post is my thankfulness and gratitude for those 'get it.'

They understand, through shared experiences, that the holidays are always painted with a shade of the loss of someone they loved.

Sometimes faint, and sometimes alarmingly bright, the hue of loss is always there.

For these family and friends, I am thankful.

I love you.

Day 325

Day 325

5:30pm.

This is my view.

I am not ready for this much darkness a day. 

At another time in our lives, we lived close to the equator.

The days and nights were about 12 hours each. 

During that time, something I missed most was the length of  summer days;

light until almost 10pm.

This time of the year brings about that same longing.

Oh Ladies...

Losing hurts. I'm not going to try to convince you it doesn't, because it does.

But if you are going to lose, going to the 5th set and bringing it to a 2 point difference is the way to do it.

I'm just the old lady watching most of the game behind a camera, but I am going to go on a limb and speak for EVERYONE who watched your game: we LOVED watching you play.

You played with heart, grit, skill and NO-ONE can say you could have given more, because you left it all out there.

And probably have the bruises to prove it.

You are a TEAM, in the truest sense of the word, and it has been so FUN watching you play. 

To the four Seniors: You are LEADERS and your characters are helping to set a standard our Little-Liners look up to and will emulate.

Congratulations ladies, you have made this town proud... Hi-Liner Proud!!

Day 321

Dig Deep.

And they did.

But the Hi-Liner Ladies came up short in the semifinal round.

However, what they lacked in points on the scoreboard, the team and the fans made up tenfold in their sportsmanship.

This scrappy little team towered over their competition in their grit, and the fans were just simply classy.

Onto tomorrow Ladies, you got this.

#Hiliner pride. #rolltrain.
