We All Have to Start Somewhere…

Even though he’d never been on skates before, he began his first morning of hockey with dreams of being the next Sydney Crosby.  It wasn’t easy, and when he dropped his stick and fell for the eighth time in five minutes, things weren’t looking good – that’s when I caught this picture.  Not too much later, though, the coach brought “walkers” to help the new skaters balance, and by the time an hour was done, he was better than me.  I’m glad I got this moment to remember, though.  Down the road, when he’s skating circles around me, it’ll remind him that we all have to start somewhere.
