Ami - peace
Today I volunteered with my high school's volleyball team. While introducing me to the girls, my former coach and one of my mentors said that I was one of their strongest players and "a very smart left side."

I never saw myself as a strong player. I know I was captain. I know I started games in grade nine and eleven when most girls my age rode the bench. I know I was MVP for my travel team and captain there too, but I always chalked that up to my good nature I guess? I always worked harder than the other girls. I was more serious. I didn't fool around. I was the one setting up the nets and taking them down again. I wasn't the hard hitter or the girl who got all the blocks. Sure I almost never missed a serve, but that's just what you have to do. I wasn't the superstar. I was the girl who passed up, not the girl who got the point.

And to hear that now just makes me very happy.

One day I want to be that to another young woman. That is my goal.

That sounds really awesome. :) I don't consider myself very sporty - at least in the traditional sports - so I admire people who are. And I'd like to think that, you worked hard, and people noticed and appreciated that. I think that's the best part. :) Keep it up~ It may not necessarily be for volleyball, but for whatever you plan to do in life. ;)

This just made my heart all fuzzy.
