The look of those fun smiling faces can tell a story all it's own.
if you lived here with me and understood all that lies underneath
it would sadden your soul.
I don't often get on a negative soap box,
However....you reach a point in which you feel as though
you must stand up for those things most dear to your heart.
AND.. my children certainly are..
ONE would think that cheerleading would be the
postcard version of what fun, excitement, and overall good times are
as there could ever be.
But.... if you are in the midst of leadership that is continually looking for faults
in 16 and 17 year old girls.... it can make your day miserable.
I don't know about you.... but when I was 16
I made so many little mistakes
(and still do for that matter)
that it would take a trailer to carry them all around.
Thank goodness I was surrounded by people
who understood that I was a teenager..
ONE whose reasoning skills were as of yet not as sharpened as they should be.
ONE whose sense of life was merely filled with the JOY of that moment.
ONE who lived for a day at school in the company of my friends....
someone who was watching my every move to CATCH me when I made a mistake.
One of my favorite verses in the Bible says... "seek and you shall find"
Well that in my opinion is exactly what is being done..
When you look for bad... YOU WILL FIND IT..
however the same is true
When you look for good... YOU WILL FIND IT TOO..
May we be ever surrounded by people who AREN'T waiting to
making such horrible mistakes in life
LIKE.. chewing gum, forgetting the correct colored bow,
not having your hands behind your back, or for heavens sake
not removing all your jewelry..
