For all the dreamers out there...I was that kid that did a lot of daydreaming at school. I had a hard time focusing on subjects like math, science & social. But put me in art class & let me draw, paint & create & I was in my element. Music class was also wonderful to me & so was gym class. One of my coaches came to one of my art shows last year & I was stunned to see him. It took me a few moments to recognize him as his daughter was the one who brought him to my show. I told him how much it meant to me that he came & how he was always so encouraging to me & always believed in me. My classmates voted me to be the captain of the volleyball & basketball team & back then I wasn’t sure what they saw in me for that position. He said, “You were so strong!” I said, “Well, I didn’t feel strong but it felt good to have people see something in me that I didn’t know was there.” I dreamt that maybe one day I would do great things. I’m so thankful this weekend for the people in my life who have always believed in me.
