only courage

March 26, 2010

I was at a primary school swimming carnival today. It takes dedication, long hours training in the pool, a good (or great) coach and maybe a few lucky genes to get to the point where you are first off the blocks and one of the best swimmers in the school over 50 metres.

To start from your position clinging to the side of the pool and struggle over 12.5 metres, it takes only courage.

Both blue ribbons equally deserved.

Children have so much to teach us if only we are open enough to let them remind us of the things we once knew but have since forgotten.

    My kids have reminded me that life is not always so serious, that true fun rarely involves expensive toys, and that time, kindness and understanding are the greatest things you can give. What delightful people they are.
