I won ribbons! Eight of them.
When I was a kid I couldn't win a ribbon for the life of me. Being asthmatic and unathletic I always came in last in the Sports Day events I was forced to participate in. It was a humiliating experience best forgotten.
With the passing years (more than I would care to admit) has come a comforting perspective. Everyone has a talent. Mine is not in the athletic department. I'll never win a ribbon for running, ball throw or *ugh* team sports. It seems I CAN win ribbons though.......if I focus on doing the things I love.
All of the items in the "group photo" have been shown on my blog before. If you want to take another look I've provided the links.
