Win, lose and sometimes tie

Today was day 2 of the soccer tournament.  The final score from todays game was 3-3 but the effort was awesome to watch.  The girls came ready to play and Megan was excellent.  For a team of 8-year-old girls who was just assembled a month ago a record of 1-1-1 for the 2 day tournament is not too bad!  I am a big believer in the old adage that it is not about if you win or lose but how you play the game.  After the big loss yesterday Meg was a little upset.  I tried to explain that wins and losses will happen and we learn from both.  Now, those who know me, know that I am an extremely competitive person.  I like to win, but what I love is heart and effort.  What I told Megan was to think about what she could do differently.  We talked about both games from yesterday and what she could do to improve today.  I was so proud of her and even more important she was proud of herself and her team!  They will not win every game but the improvement from yesterday was awesome!

Today was the best I have felt since the nipple reconstruction and breast revision.  That makes me very happy because I need to get back to life this week.  Wednesday morning I have a doctor’s appointment where I expect to be cleared for some activity.  Two hours later I have met the teacher with my baby, I hope Kindergarten is ready for her!  I need to be driving by Wednesday so I need to be narcotic free!  Hopefully tomorrow is better than today and Tuesday better than that!
