Appreciation

No one will honestly admit it, but everyone likes to be appreciated.  And when that appreciation comes from teenage, high school boys... you can't help but know that you've been blessed. Today was the wrestling team banquet... at time to celebrate the end of a successful season and to recognize those individuals that stepped up and went above what was expected of them.  Now, I've always had respect for wrestlers so when they turn around and show appreciation it comes with more meaning.  They thanked me.  I feel so selfish because all I do for the team is its own reward.  I have the privilege of being on the mat with THEM and spending time with THEM... and they thanked me.  It is humbling and an easy blessing to count for today.
