Only Winners, no losers
Someone e-mailed this to me on Friday, for Veteran's Day, no doubt. Of course, I saw way past the veteran thing, as important as that may be.
Last weekend our high school's girls' volleyball team played at state. They took second place, and when I asked someone about it, I was told they lost at state. Really? Because I think that if your team is good enough to make it to the state championship, they are far from losers. They didn't win the last game, that's all, they are still champions. They played by the rules and won the prize. Why do we as a society think that winning only means coming in first?
Since the Bible passage also talks about farmers, today's picture is of the farm at Najile in Kenya. Today's word count for my memoir from that trip is 545. Close to my daily goal, but still behind overall.
