Our five year old is my husband’s football team’s biggest fan. He goes to practice everyday. He’s cheering the loudest at the games. He asks each player their name.
Last week, they lost. Umari was there…sad and couldn’t understand why the Rams didn’t win. “I told them to run” was his response.
He walked inside the gate and high fived every player and coach that walked by.
After the game, our family stood by the gate, as usual, and waited for my husband to come over…not Umari.
And that’s when it hit me…everyone needs a cheerleader. A person who’s there to celebrate when the times are good and the person to encourage and just be there when times aren’t so good. Think about it, the cheerleaders are there no matter what the score is or how the team is doing, they’re there.
As much as we need a cheerleader, be someone’s cheerleader…everybody needs one 🏽
