A day late....
I saw this video on a fellow bloggers page a few weeks ago and found myself watching it over and over, forwarding it to people, and becoming extremely emotional...with Mothers Day this weekend, I thought it was perfect for my first Mothers Day post.
I wasn't effected just because I too am now a Mother, but because I see what it was like for my Mom and Dad. Sports were always such a large part of my life. I remember Mom dropping me off at 5:45 am for swim practice, I can still hear my Dad's voice yelling "C'Mon Manda" before the gun went off for those dreaded 400 hurdles, and I can see both of them standing and shouting "Let's go FAAS" as my name was announced for the start of a basketball game. I can only imagine what it was like for them seeing me succeed and fail doing what I love and worked so hard to do. And I also realize that I never would have accomplished what I did, had it not been for their dedication to what I loved. I can only hope to be as big of a cheerleader and supporter of Jimmer as they were for me.
|Ignore my double chin....Jimmer looks too fabulous not to post:)|
Happy Mothers Day to all the Mothers and soon to be Mothers out there. The hardest job truely is the best job.
