Winning is Delicious!

“Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat.”

                                                       Malcolm S. Forbes

Have you ever tasted such wonderful victory that you gained 5 lbs and came away with a cavity?

Well Lo, Coach and the entire softball team did last night.


They beat the team that can’t be beat.

They beat the team that everyone fears.

They beat the team that never loses.

They taught them humility.

Their first loss in our county in 7 years.

Our fist victory against them in our school’s history.



Oh, nothing tastes as good as seeing your people happy.

ecstatic. energized. enthused.

There were big smiles. There were happy tears. There was joy.

Seriously, they were both so happy when we got back home, they could not even eat the nice dinner I had prepared.

They were already full of joy!

2 to1 Da’ Bears!!! Sweet victory.

  3. Catching up on your posts, Suz!!!! We are having a wonderful time in Arkansas –and have taken a zillion pictures…My son and my granddaughter's team won one like that last year—and it made all of those long practices worthwhile… Winning is great –especially that kind of win. Congrats to Coach and Lo–and the team.Hugs,Betsy


  4. That is HISTORY on the books now! Awesome – Congratulations to both of them (and the rest of the team, of course). I hope it's going to be in your local paper; if not, I know someone *ahem* who should send a little email and photos in to the editor! HUGS to all!
