Okay, so this isn't stitching related in any way, size, shape or form...but can I take just a "mama moment" here? Ian worked so hard to win this tournament. The kid would play four hours in the Florida heat, do an hour of conditioning n the same heat, and then run laps on top of that, so that he could build his endurance. (Hey, I can do laps too - it's just that mine are usually from the couch to the refrigerator and back again. LOL). Anyway, Ian won the championship in his age division and brought home the trophy. (Think he looks just a little tired in the photo?) :)
Way to go, Son! Your Dad and I are so proud of your efforts. Win or lose - we feel so blessed that God gifted us with the honor of being your parents. God gave us a son to raise - that's our most-important job ever. The fact that God gave us a son to raise who also loves tennis is a wonderful bonus! I tend to spend a bit of time grouching about your messy room - I want to make sure that I spend even more time telling you
just how great you really are!! Love you, love you, love you!!!
(Hey, I stitch and I'm the mama of the trophy-wielding fellow - maybe it's a tennsy-weensy bit stitching-related?? Nah!!!) :) Thanks for sharing the joy with us - the win has definitely been a bright spot in our rough patch of life lately.
