My mind often wanders to the baseball field. As a mom, I’ve spent much of my time on cold-metal-bleachers and would have it no other way. My children are pretty sports-driven and have participated in baseball, football, ballet, tap, basketball, track, soccer, gymnastics and karate. I have enrolled them in a number of things over the years including Miss & Mr. Manners for tots because I want them to turn out to be good citizens, and mensches. In Yiddish, mensch essentially means “a good person.”
So far we’ve learned that being a good sport is most important and that players, judges and umps are not always perfect. But..it’s more about the experience than the end-result.
Children have an amazing capacity for fun. They may be totally committed to winning but within an hour of the games end, they forget who won and who lost. They do not however, forget who was on their team and the joy of playing the game together.
I think it’s true that we learn more from our children than they do from us. Last night as I sat watching one of the last games of the season, I realized that I’m not always such a good sport. I have to remember that it’s just a game.
Being a good sport doesn’t always have to do with sports.
Every single one of us is here to learn.
Though the weight of recent national and local events has been heavy and not every politician seems to have 20/20 vision, I believe in people. I love my team.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. Mother Teresa
