Andy took our ten year old to the NCAA basketball finals on Monday night as a birthday surprise and I have to share a story from their trip. Erin loves soccer and was wearing her favorite "Duke soccer" cap (Duke was playing Butler). At the game, she saw a group of Duke students, all girls, wearing Duke soccer clothes, and she went over and asked if they were on the soccer team. They said yes and were so excited Erin was wearing a hat in support of their team that they all had a great big love fest. Erin got them to autograph her hat (and she autographed it too!), and the girls were all incredibly sweet and nice and encouraging of her.
That got me thinking about how ya' never know when fun, encouragement and team will show up - and how we find it together online all the time. And how much I love that.
Hats off to you, my fun and fabulous friends online!
