Sometimes You Need to Play Soccer

Here is our quote for September:

“Right here, right now, God has placed you to do what you do best.  Go all the way.”   —Coach Eric Taylor

          A great quote indeed.  This past year has been tough in the greater Houston area with so many people being affected by Hurricane Harvey.  With this tragedy came many opportunities for our community to help and support one another.

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day (we will call him C.W.) and it reminded me of the work he did after Hurricane Harvey.  His work was closed many days after Hurricane Harvey hit and he like a lot of us helped neighbors and total strangers with clean up.  C.W. is a HUGE soccer fan; he took that love of soccer and started an impromptu soccer game with some of the neighborhood children where he was volunteering.  No goals, no cleats, just a soccer ball from the trunk of C.W.’s car, a patch of grass and a group of children.  This type of kindness was felt all over the Houston area in the past year.  A soccer game, so simple and fun, was just what those children needed…they needed to be children, they needed a break from the stress that they were feeling.

There is no doubt in my mind that C.W. was placed at that place and at that time to help those children remember what it is to have fun with other children.   In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives sometimes we miss opportunities to be the best that we can be.  A kind word, a positive smile, a nod, paying it forward at Starbucks, or stopping for a pedestrian when it’s raining.  There are opportunities all around us we just have to make sure to take time to read the subtle cues and respond to them with the love in our hearts.  Make sure that you do what you do best today and maybe you can help someone else to…
