Fan Club

Dayton's team won again this morning but I'm certain that isn't what sticks out in anyone's mind. He was one excited little guy and did not stop smiling during the time we spent in the gymnasium. It didn't matter if he was on the court or sitting on the side lines by his Dad as he was such a happy fella!

The ball was passed to him several times and several times he was able to pass it to other team mates. He is part of a team and he gets that part of it. The excitement on his face when the ball would reach his hands was precious! At one point he even took a shot and swelled with pride! It didn't matter that he didn't score at that moment. What mattered was that he was courageous and tried as *part of his team*!

I love watching him race around the court! He does a great job playing defense and is all about guarding his man. Ellie also enjoys the games as she gets exclusive attention from the family members in attendance. She prances around and steals a little attention from everyone. Today my Mom came with me and both of Dayton's Paternal Grandparents were present as well as an Aunt, Uncle and some cousins. His Dad, Step Mom and Sister are also a staple and an important part of his cheering section.

Wouldn't it be lovely if we all had our own cheering section in life? This reminds me of a thought that was shared while I was a missionary. Please take a few moments to read 'The Cheering Section' as my words will do it no justice!

On the B Side: I am grateful that people can come together out of love to support a common cause. I love that we each have our own unique cheering section in this life and am so humbled by the individuals that make up my little squad! I can only hope that I am able to offer as much light, love, support and encouragement to others. xoxo
