    I actually enjoyed this challenge - not that I like taking photos of myself or journaling, but it was fun! I didn't have to nearly kill myself standing on a stool to take a photo or spend 2 days trying to learn how to do something in Photoshop! I have enjoyed seeing photos of some of those who don't use a photo for their avatar. It's nice to put a face with a user name! - My word count is 72.

    Thanks for the fun challenge - I do forget to be in the album. This one is especially rare as no hair or make up done, but it's important to show my girls the everyday too, so thank you for the challenge:

    Great challenge. I hope my story is enough about me. I wrote in the first person and it is about my perspective on everything, it's just also wrapped up in actual events.

    Journaling (366 words) reads:
    I sometimes can be a very nervous hockey mom; today was certainly one of those times. My day began with an early morning game to determine whether my daughter’s team would play for the championship or for third place. As I sat in the stands during the game, I cheered for their good plays, their scores and started to feel some hope build as they kept the game tight. Our team scored first, and although their opponent continued to catch-up and tie, the team stayed strong. And then the injuries happened. First, our goalie was down and then ruled out of the rest of the game due to concussion protocol. We were leading by one and now faced with having to put in a girl at goalie who typically plays defense. And then, as we drove down the ice toward the goal yet again, a collision between players took another of our forward players out. Down two players, I nervously paced the stands, cheering loudly as our back-up goalie played strongly and our girls showed up with strong puck control and defense. As time wound down, and the other team went to an empty net, our girls maintained their composure and won the game, assuring that they would play for the championship later in the afternoon.
    After that nerve-wracking game, I decided that lunch needed to involve a little bit of calming courage for this over-anxious mom. It is definitely not typical for me to drink much more than an occasional beer; however, today’s lunch order included a Bloody Mary, which worked to settle things for the later endeavor.
    My selfie was taken once we were home for the night. I’m wearing my official “hockey mom gear” and a huge smile as I recall the lessons of the day. And while we didn’t win the later championship game it doesn’t really matter. Our team can be so proud of the morning victory - as it came from pulling together and sticking with it, both qualities that sports and teamwork teach us. Certainly, these are the important life lessons, for as the saying goes, “It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.”
