On the next to last post ¨life 101¨ I talked about how life was not really about winning, how life is hard and a lot of times unfair, and how in some way I was happy that my girls, specially Alessia, was (as much as it hurts) learning that so very important lesson by loosing at her last gymnastics competition.
After Ale´s gymnastics competition Emi had her turn in the field, unfortunately this time was not her day either. This year she is the youngest in her category having girls up to two years older than her, so in days where a lot of schools are competing there is a good chance that she´ll have it rough! The thing is that for Emi, winning is not an issue, she is really happy by just being there and giving her best shot, her all, everytime, everyday, at anything she does!
As I always say... my daughter.. my teacher! Emi with her sweet and brave way is a life lesson all by its own...
On Friday, Ale competed again.. we were nervous, and as much as I said that it wasn´t all about winning, that we don´t always get what we want, or what we deserve, well Ale...she needs to win, she is like that! So not wining this time would have been a pretty big deal for her. Thankfully... she did great!!!!! And I think that maybe more than happy I was relived, I didn´t want to go over life 101 with her again! haha And she was happy... over the moon proud and happy!
Friends do definitely make winning even better!
And then of course there is Ari, always there, my willing companion, my not so very silent witness of all the miles driven, of all the laughs in the car, the ups and the downs of having big sisters, always smiling and singing probably unaware of any big event, because for her everything is equally exciting. This little one, doesn´t care about winning or loosing, her love and awe for her sisters is completely unconditional she doesn´t know the difference between first or last place, she just knows how good it feels to have a family that feels, that sings, that dances, that cries.... a family with two sisters that just make her laugh!
