I am no athlete, but my lack of ability only makes me appreciate the athletically gifted more. Which is why I’m so proud of my school’s boys’ basketball team–the All-City Champions. They stood in the gym this morning, brandishing a huge trophy and beaming from ear to ear. Each one wore a medal. I shook their hands; my five-foot-ten hand felt smallish in theirs.
Our older son is incredibly tall for his age. Perhaps he’ll join the ranks of the slam-dunkers someday.
