Last night was volleyball and Brenna did her weekly water girl duties. Man, she loves those gals. She cheered on both j.v. and varsity teams. It was 6 games of love.
Until the Eagle landed.
I have never seen her jump up off of a bench so fast in all my life.
This photo says everything that I love about Brenna.
Someone who makes a beeline for a character like this with her face shining with expectation and happiness just has to make your day.
It just takes my heart and wrings it out.
"The EAGLE is here!!!!"
Nothing else mattered in that moment.
Oh, I wish I could express how happy she was to get a hug and that the Eagle said, "hey, Brenna."
There is a fine line between make believe and real, don't you think?
But in Brenna's world, well, it's all real.
That makes me stop and take another look at what is good, and honest and kind, and then strive to be that for others like her.
She sure has changed my life.
