C is for "Catch!"
I have this very unusual gift!
I am able to catch almost anything that is tossed to me. Strange, but yes. My family laughs every time it happens because I rarely miss. Things like keys, a pen, a water bottle, a piece of fruit, a shoe, even a camera tossed from the middle of a creek onto a rocky bank....it is just weird. I think it happens mostly now...because I believe...as if I know that I will catch it...so I do.
This weekend we were playing a game of family football on the beach. I ran to the endzone and got open three times....the ball was thrown right to me and I dropped it every time.
Then I heard Emily say, "It's weird, Mom catches everything we throw to her...except the football, hmmm?"
I heard that and I thought about it for a moment. The next play, we did the same thing. I ran to the endzone, got open, and yelled for the QB to throw to me. He threw it....and I caught it! Yes!!!
So what does that mean?
There is real power in what we believe about ourselves. Who we are and what we are capable of achieving. This little incident spoke volumes to me...and I really hope that I will be able to remember it the next time I doubt or even question my ability or worth.
It is not about football or catching little trinkets. It is about me...believing in me.
Remember who you are...and what you've come through...and what you've meant to those around you.
"C' is the letter of the day.
