She was the goalie.
And two scores got past her. One. Two. In just a mater of a few minutes.
The coach was telling her it was okay. Others were telling her it was okay.
But the best cheer was coming from a teammate on the side. He kept watching her.
“Nora, what’s wrong? It’s okay. Nora, it’s okay. It’s nothing. Have fun.”
She looked pretty dejected.
He continued “Nora, you’re okay. Just have fun!”
Looking at Nora you could tell she was not okay.
A few minutes later he threw out another “Nora, you’re okay!”
He looked away from Nora and at his teammate on the sideline and said “I just want to have fun”.
“It’s okay Nora!”
I think he’s going to be okay.
And so are some others in life with him around.
