A Sports Parent’s Thank-You to Everything Sports




With Thanksgiving around the corner, my heart is oozing gratitude for all the blessings that bring joy and warmth to our lives. It’s not about just this time of the year. Every moment that brings a tiny giggle, or even half a smile, I secretly thank the Lord for it; but with Thanksgiving, I love the tradition of expressing it to all those who make it happen. 

While we are at it, I want to thank everything that revolves around my son’s sports-life, from school to coach to teammates to parents of other players and everybody else. As a mother of a young baseball player who is committed to the game, I know how much of an influence sports can have on a child. I am thankful to each and everyone who have contributed to enriching our sports experience.

I am grateful to the school

·        For organizing and encouraging kids to play sports and have a healthy life style.

·        For providing a good facility to play sports.

·        For having a good coach on board.

·        For selecting my son in the school team.

·        For listening to us.

I am grateful to the Coach

·        For working so hard on our kids to teach game-skills.

·        For teaching kids not just the game, but values and discipline as well.

·        For being there; for games, practices and beyond.

·        For believing in the spirit of sport, not just in victory.

·        For appreciating the effort when the team loses.

·        For working diligently with each child, focusing on his strengths and weaknesses.

·        For believing in our children.

·        For making our kids believe in themselves.

·        For teaching our kids to lose gracefully.

·        For making our kids love the game, and enjoy it too.

·        For putting in efforts to keep the teamwork alive and in-action at all times.

·        For talking. Talking to parents about the game and everything around it.

·        For listening.

I am grateful to the Team

·        For being such a wonderful team together.

·        For being so supportive of each other.

·        For bringing cheer in our lives with your cute little joys and vivid you-know-what-happened-in-the-game-today stories.

·        For taking care of your health and eating well.

·        For including us in your team picnic.

·        For being such a wonderful lot, we’re proud of.

 I am grateful to Team Parents

·        For cooperating.

·        For the car pool.

·        For supporting all kids in the team.

·        For volunteering and helping out, even though I mostly can’t.

·        For helping my son when I am not around.

Thank you everyone for making our sports experience so gratifying. Happy Thanksgiving!
