Warrior Update

For those who read yesterday’s blog about my daughter competing in the USA National Weightlifting Championships today, I’ll follow through. Arlene did really well. She beat her own records, pushed herself into new territory by lifting well beyond what she has achieved before. And she finished 5th in the nation in her category.

I learned about teams by watching all day. Only 3 of the team of 8 competed today, but the whole team drove 16 hours drive to be there because that is who these kids are. It’s not about any specific thing anyone does to assist or support the others, it is about the love that makes the whole organism unquestionably one organism. And without that individuals simply couldn’t do it. I am telling you, athletes who do these astonishing things, it is the love that drives it and makes it possible. I never saw sports in this light until today. What a delicious revelation.
