Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. Thomas A. Edison
The most satisfying thing about hosting a blog is that you feel free to verbalize whatever pops in your mind… After all, it is my party and I’ll cry if I want to…
So what I want to say today without fear of being censured is that I chose Susan Wyatt as the Most Improved Player of the season.
Despite an obvious handicap, this gallant lady persevered and has become an excellent pointer. A few months ago her boules came awkwardly off the mark. But today I noticed that most her shots are landing within 12 inches of the cochonnet.
A vast improvement upon last year.
“Sport is not about being better than someone else; it’s about being better than you were the day before.”
And Susan is definitely better and can dare to play with the Big Boys.
Regardless of whom you play with, you should always recognize and applaud a good player. And I applaud Susan for playing well. It is the sporting thing to do.
Wyatt, as she likes to be called, was initially very shy and reserved. But buoyed by success she has finally come out of her shell and seems to be much more assured and confident than last year.
Three cheers for Wyatt! She may look like a lamb but she has the heart of a lion.
