On not giving up!

(As we grow old - simple things matter in life and we learn more from minor events)

I took my daughter for Tennis camp. During class, she got hit on her already wiggly front tooth. She walk out of court crying, having bleeding gum and stained T-shirt. One mom who was sitting with me helped me putting ice on her gums etc. As bleeding subsided, I asked my daughter to either stay with me or to go back in court?, she kept crying, not knowing what to do.

Helping mom said to my daughter: "Go baby! you don't give up so easily!" My daughter went back and finished  her lesson.

And I was thinking: I was about to destroy my daughter's confidence. Thanks to that Mom to teach me and my daughter an important lesson in life!
