Today is a very special day. My favorite 9th grader will don her Haymaker Cross Country uniform and compete in her first Varsity race. Beneath the nervous pre-race jitters, I look into her eyes and see the determination and focus of an athlete. What I see makes me a believer — I am not only her mother, but also her biggest fan.
Today, as pride fills my heart, I remember a quote by Drew Brees:
“Believing—there are several layers to it. There’s the surface-level type of believing, where you acknowledge that something is true. Then there is a deeper kind of belief–the type that gets inside of you and actually changes you. It’s the kind of belief that changes your behavior, your attitude, and your outlook on life, and the people around you can’t help but notice.”
What kind of believer are you?
