Teaching Our Children How to Lose: Lessons In Grace

We still speak so fondly of Coach Bill today.

“And that’s what I’ll teach your boys. I have a reputation, I’m sure you’ve heard. It’s all true. I will work these boys hard every practice, that’s how you learn the game.

You could see the enjoyment in every swing of the bat and when we lost, those kids held their heads high, learned from it, boosted one another up and got ready for the next one. Such a basic but tremendous life lesson to be gifted at such a young age. Thanks, Bob!! 🙂

  2. And knowing you and your lovely wife I can say I am not surprised by this at all. ❤ It's truly how we should live our lives. I am having trouble coming around to putting to practice what I preach with regards to this election but grief is a process and I'm much further along than I was 'the day after'. So much love to you, Katie and all the spiritual souls there.
