Ordinary Miracles (14)

What a week last week was.  More like, what a weekend.

Last weekend, Sassy's volleyball team had their final tournament of the season.  The location of the tournament was about 1 1/2 hours from our house and games began at 8am Saturday morning.  Meaning, it was a hotel weekend.

The 10 girls on the team split up between 2 rooms.  They got together about a week ago and created personalized banners to hang on their hotel room doors.  They turned out super cute.... and of course I forgot to snap a picture!  The girls were excited to have their own rooms and from what I hear, it sounds like they had a great time hanging out together and building up their friendships.

Like I said, Saturday they played their first game at 8 am.  Their next 4 games continued throughout the day ~ ending around 6 pm.   Sunday morning was another early game with 3 more after that.

After 9 games in 2 days the girls took 3rd place in their bracket.  They played some really good volleyball and ended the season with a win and a little hardware.

But mostly, throughout the season they learned about winning and losing, teamwork, team spirit, they worked on the skills they already had and learned many new things.  They met some new wonderful friends and I met some wonderful parents.

It was a great season ~ and an Ordinary Miracle if you ask me with wonderful coaches, great teammates and very little drama (you just never know with 13 year old girls!)

Now, glance back at your week and think about the ordinary things, people, places or happenings that took place in your life. The ordinary that is usually taken for granted.

And, tell me what miracles occurred in your life!
