My little boy wrestled his last match today.

He was 5th at Regionals.

Only the top 4 go on to State.

My little boy learned an important life lesson today.

Sometimes you work hard, you train hard, you push through the injuries and you still don’t attain the goal you want.

My little boy made his mama pretty proud today.


How did he react to his disappointments?

Did he throw his headgear?

Or stomp off the mat?

Absolutely not.

He shook hands and held his head up.

He showed some emotion, and then he started mentally preparing for his next challenge.

My little boy acted like a MAN today.

Today in the face of disappointments and adversity he showed this mama that he is able to handle what life throws at him.

In the game of life, I would call today a win.
