This makes me happy...

So you must know that I am an avid tennis player and nothing makes me more happy than having my children enjoy what I enjoy.
This kid has improved tremendously.  This is his second year playing on our club's Jr. tennis team. I love talking to him after his matches. It is a common bond we have.
I like that he is learning "tennis manners" and etiquette from his team experience.
We always have a lot to talk about regarding strategy and he loves to share stories about his opponents.
So far I can still beat him, but I don't know how much longer that will last.
And that makes me happy too.

My most joyful times are watching my boys do something they love to do. It may sound old fashioned but it feels like I have succeeded when my kids do. I DO have my own identity but being mom is part of it and it fills my heart.
