I am a sports fan!
I love to show my support by donning my team colors and cheering my heart out! I LOVE to see my team win! But if that team happens to be one that my child is playing on, all that really matters to me is that they gave their best effort and they did so with a good attitude. The speech featured in the video above is one I have listened to many times since last year’s Little League World Series. To me it is all that is right in the world. It is why I work harder and sacrifice more so that my kids can play team sports. The lessons learned in a team sport like baseball, on of our personal faves, are ones that will last them a life time.
The thrill of victory is fleeting but the character and relationships built on that field will last long after the equipment is packed up and the lights are turned off. To me that’s what the Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes #ShowYourStripes campaign is really about. As a mom it is always fun to watch the hard work pay off in a great hit or an epic diving catch. But the moments I’m really most proud of are ones like when after a tough loss my son still seeks out the pitcher of the opposing to team to congratulate him on a great game because they played together a few years ago and will always be friends no matter what colors they may where on game day. My favorite saying is “my son never loses! he either wins or he learns!”
