With My Breath Held

I don’t mind sitting on the sidelines

It can be quite energizing

To see others play

With inspiring determination

And willingness to give everything they’ve got

To achieve.

I watch with my breath held

With my cheers loud

With hope for your goals.

  7. I’ve always found great satisfaction in mentoring others, especially youngsters, at all levels. That can be as little as an encouraging word, or gesture. It makes a difference.
    You make a difference Colleen!


  8. ‘And just enjoy the show’ ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. Everyone needs a good cheerleader in their life.


  10. Helping another person achieve their goals can be so rewarding. Sometimes more rewarding than achieving our own.
