Story by Rochelle M. Pennington. "I stopped at Dairy Queen, purchased a sandwich, and sat down in the crowded dining room next to a family celebrating their son's basketball game over an ice- cream cake. Since the isles were especially narrow, I soon felt like I was a part of the party. "So, your team must have won this afternoon," I commented. The little fellow smiled and wholeheartedly announced, "No, we lost 24 - 2." "Well, you must have made the only basket then, " I said. "No, I missed all of the eight shotsI took, but three of them did hit the rim." This child was elated. I was confused. They were celebrating because his team lost the game and because he had missed eight baskets! Seldom am I at a loss for words, but the only response I could muster up at that moment was a blank stare and a very large, insincere looking smile. Absolutely no clue. After another mouthful of cake, and still grinning from ear to ear, he added, "We're having a party because last week I missed nine shots and none of them even came near to the backboard. Dad says that all of my practicing must have paid off. I'm making progress." ----Reminder to me to take time to celebrate other's accomplishments, no matter how small they may appear to be.
