Day 262 - Water Play
Thought of the day: It was a summer day spent near water under the sun. Too much sun, perhaps, as Jasmine ended the day a shade darker than when she started it. She had her first swim meet in the afternoon. It was more fun than competitive and she didn't care a bit what kind of ribbon she got as long as she got one. Whether it was a first place ribbon or a 5th place ribbon, she would accept them with equal giddiness and delight. I wonder when the spirit of competitiveness will eventually kick in. I hope it won't be for a long, long time so she can enjoy the sport for the beauty and joy of the sport itself and won't be tormented by a singular desire to win.
