Often, the best lessons in life come during the most difficult moments.  It’s an ironic twist to your torment.  However, just because there’s a lesson to be learned doesn’t lessen the fact that it really did hurt you, break you, embarrass you, scare you, or scar you.  Whether a million other people have experienced similar pains and perils, made the same mistakes, or tripped and fell at the same spots you did, doesn’t matter.  Don’t ever let anyone generalize, or belittle your battles because they are yours and the pain is personal.   Of course your true lessons should go deeper than any obvious commitments to just make better choices.  Beyond your choice to choose more wisely, you should also feel a new strength of purpose within yourself.  You’ve faced your fears, or maybe you’re still facing them, but that’s what makes you better for your battles; you are still pressing forward.

Just a few thoughts about the Junior Jazz program here in Morgan County.

From what I have seen, as both a coach(in years past) and a parent with 2 participants this year, it is a well run program and good for the kids. Parents step up to coach, and do their best to teach the basic principles of the game. The teams, at least in the girls divisions that I have watched, are about as even as you can get, with most games being played very close, and the ability of the players are spread out from team to team. I know both my girls are having a good time, and enjoy both the practices and the games. Thanks Coach Brian House and Dave Henry!
