Gymnastics provincials were on Friday, June 1, 2018. I was so nervous for my little girl and hopes and prayed for her to get on my podium. This time we were competing with 40 kids in one group instead of the regular 8. She placed 16th in Ontario All around. Now as a mom I couldn’t be more proud than I already am of my little mamasita but as a parent especially a mom you always and I mean always want the best for your kids.
All year she did amazing placing in the top three on the podium. Provincials was a whole other ball game and as a parent you want the best for your kids all the time. I can’t lie it totally broke my heart to know that she didn’t place for a medal I knew how much she wanted it. All I wanted her to know was that she was loved very much. How come when our kids go through something that didn’t quite work out the way it was supposed to, as parents we just want to hug it all away? I knew it bothered her that she didn’t get a medal because she loves to win… lol, but who doesn’t. She was fine in the grand scheme of things. To justify… it was her first championship competition.
For the last couple of days I have questioned as a parent what could I have done differently to support my child in her endeavours …. This is how the conversation went down….
Me: I want to give her the sun moon and stars the cosmos and galaxies far beyond,
Universe: The best thing you can give is them knowing even through the ups and downs the love for her will be remain the same the spirit is Omni present and forever means the same it’s the being that becomes in life no matter the lead down for the heartbreak long as we know that we are loved our love then our spirit will forever be intact.
