I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

The 10 girls on my fourth grade volleyball team exude so much joy. And they bring a smile to my face with their enthusiasm and energy. (Sometimes they're a bit over the top and dramatic, but I'll take it...and I'll usually laugh right along with them.)

The girls did well tonight - they won a game and lost a game - and they took it all in stride. We've been working on serves and passes, and, wouldn't you know it, they did pretty darn good in both areas.

I believe it does the heart good to spend time with younger kids - the innocence and fun-loving attitude along with the willingness to work for improvement all add up to time well spent (especially as a coach). Our season is nearing its end, but we'll be back again in the fall. Bring it on, dolphins. Volleyball for the win!
