Richie was so excited that his heart literally burst with pride. Finally, not only was he now part of the team, he also scored a winning goal.
For the first time in forever, someone felt that he was good enough to step away from the bench by the sidelines’ where he always sat watching.
Ever since Mr. Pierson became the school coach, his life changed for the better.
He was no longer considered the slow boy, the odd one out, the autistic child who didn’t seem to fit in.
Mr. Pierson was so inclusive and encouraging. He simply brought the best out of his students, which was so unlike the previous coach who never wanted to be bothered with the special needs children.

Thank you, Yinglan for the photo and Priceless Joy for hosting this charming platform where we unleash our stories
Each awakening moment of our lives offers us two main choices.
A choice on how to treat and relate to others and a choice on how to treat ourselves.
Think about it for a moment and you will realise that everything we do is centred on these two main player’s; ourselves and others.
I’ve found that a bid to make a positive impact on other people’s lives never leaves the giver empty handed. In caring for others, we inadvertently care for ourselves.
The rewards are life changing and sometimes beyond your expectations.
May the lamp that you carry not only cast light on your path. Let its flickers offer some brightness to those you encounter on your way.
