Only 3 teams are left in League Playoffs in this tier.
We are one of them.
This game determines if we place 3rd, or go on to fight for 1st.
It's the last period....1:19 minutes left to be exact.
Our team is given a penalty for holding.
We're down to 4 players...and the opposing team decides to pull their goalie.
Now it's 6 on 4.
After the last hour and a half of hard playing, all players are exhausted.
Now it comes down to 6 against 4 with just over 1 minute of play.
And both sides fight hard.
Forward to 1.6 seconds remaining!
Our defenseman winds up and shoots the puck from the farthest end of the rink.... to the other.
It slides by the other 3 players on his team.
It also slides by all 6 others on the opposing team.
And with a few inches away from the edge of the net...it slides....... in!
The buzzer sounds.
I don't know as I have ever jumped that high off a seat before.
That had to have marked the most exciting game and moment of play in my
So proud of you Ben.
That was one awesome shot!
And then...it hit me.
I would have been that proud of him had he made that goal....
It didn't matter.
My love for him isn't based on what he can do or what he's done.
It's just love.
I love my kiddos no matter what they do, don't do, can, or cannot do.
It made me wonder.....
what would our world would be like if we all had that kind of love~~
regardless of conditions?
~Happy weekend everyone!~
