I Heart the Olympics

I'm not a huge TV watcher, but I have looked forward to tuning in to the Olympics every night. I love watching the athletes compete, and love hearing their stories. The other night, my Sweet Girl and I were watching some of those Olympic stories. She mentioned to me that most of these athletes have reached for their dream and succeeded [and perhaps achieved greatness], but only after overcoming challenges. I grabbed the teaching moment and we talked about life being like that, too. Never be afraid of a challenge. You never know what overcoming it might lead to! Maybe that's the connection I feel to these amazing athletes. We're all trying our best, overcoming our own challenges, and reaching for our dreams, aren't we?

Here are my favorite moments so far:
