You know how the Lord uses your kids to teach you a little something about life? This was one of those moments He did this!
Last week Corvan, at the ripe age of 7 years old, wrestled off with 5 other wrestlers at his weight for a jv or varsity spot on the team. Corvan beat all of them and was our varsity wrestlers this last weekend. Me, being all protective, was telling myself, “I am excited he is on varsity, but is he going to have a chance being so young an all?” I truthfully was ready for him to get killed. And of course, I didn’t want him to get discouraged so I didn’t say anything to him just told him how proud I was of his hard work.
He had two matches. The first one he lost by one point at the very last 5 seconds of the match. It was disappointing but he did sooooooo well. The next one, is where we learned our lesson. He was wrestling a kid whom he had wrestled with at a past meet and got beat pretty bad. Jim and I, again, weren’t saying anything to Corv but knew there wasn’t much chance ( WHAT LITTLE FAITH DON’T YOU THINK?) So, Brayden goes to Corvan and says, “you know this kid kicked your butt last time,” Corvan’s response so matter of fact, like duh…..” Yah, so it’s my turn this time to win right?” Again, I, with little faith say in my head, “I hope he isn’t disappointed!” (what little faith!!!)
He got out there, listened to his coach the whole way thru and pinned his opponent. Corvan had the whole gym up watching, it was so exciting and I was so proud of him. I would have been even if it wasn’t a win BUT I did learn that the circumstances that surround me is what I go by instead of the faith that what I don’t see could happen.
It was a great day, and I have faith the next match will be great too!
