Recently our son sent us a picture of his son, nine-year-old Brigham, holding up a medal. Brigham had received the medal during a football game. His team had not won the game, but Brigham had demonstrated sportsmanship and teamwork while playing.
It is part of our nature to want to win, but Brigham rose above that and found satisfaction in playing the game and helping his team members. My heart swelled with pride when I realized that Brigham had learned a lesson that many of us are still trying to learn.
Joy for today: being proud of Brigham.
