Come Home with Your Sheild or on it.....

I can't explain what it is like to be the mother of an amazing talented child. Last nights game was awesome although we lost. My son made a couple of saves but this team played dirty. He called me late last night...
"Mom, I failed and froze and didn't do as good as I can."
As my heart started to bleed right then and there I said Son in life you will have times of failure, but that doesn't mean that you give up. It takes failure to appreciate and attain success. I said you are part of a team, you all have to work together for a common goal...You nee4d to bring your teammates up when you feel like they are giving up. I told him remember in tract when your best friend helped and pushed to to get faster? He says "yes" well that is what you have to do when your team is in practice. Believe in them and believe in yourself because I do and you could never fail me. His best is good enough for me. I then told him he comes from greatness and that he will succeed this is only the first game. I told him to be a Spartan come home with your shield or on it!
I love that kid!

As a Spartan, we are taught to face the enemy and meet them on the field of battle with our best game face on.
We win even in defeat when the enemy is left bloodied to wounded to continue.
