You are always so good at being an active part of all your kids do. What a fine supportive mother you are--


That is such a sweet experience! I wish I could have been there with you to see that! (As long as I could skip the judge part ;)



Wow you really are an awesome mother! The kind I want be. You're definetely a great example to me. That's a really neat experience you had, gave me chills for that sweet little girl.


Does the judge's name begin the the letter K by any chance? :)

He used to scare me until I timed beam with him on several occasions -- now I have a great deal of respect for the man. He is a darn good judge. I might not choose him as a best friend, but I do respect him.

And your experience with the disabled girl -- how sweet! I hope your kids were able to witness it, too. I am always grateful for opportunities that help my children love and understand those with different challenges than their own. Growing up with deaf grandparents gave me such neat experiences, and I always want my children to similar opportunities.


I know that the experience with the judge must have been tough, but what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right?? Yeah?? ...

But what a neat experience! I'm glad that you were able to get something so wonderful out of a potentially frustrating day.

Love you Aunt Mar!

Very touching story. It made my throat swell up, on the verge of tears, not just with great respect for this little girl, but for the love of her coach and teammates. I'm sure her parents are very proud of her. (Mind if I share it in a lesson or talk?


What a special experience for you. Not only were you with your kids and showing them such a great example of hard work, getting things done and service, but your also had the opportunity to have your heart touched. That doesn't come along every day.


Marilyn will always see the brightest spot of any situation, and she will always love for those who have seen challenges to everyday life. I love that about her. I love that she loves others so much more than herself even. I want to be like that more and more everyday. You're a beautiful example Marilyn. Thank you for everything...
