Saying I Love You, Softball Style…| Softball is For Girls

Sometimes, love doesn’t look like a Hallmark Card. In fact, most times it doesn’t. It doesn’t come wrapped up in a package with hearts, and it isn’t spoken out loud with the common words we are all accustomed to hearing.

Addie | The Girl Who Forgot How to Pitch

So, why I share my story is because I want other people - the non-players (parent, coaches) to know how much pressure can be on the players from a young age. Especially when they are very talented.

Millie (Explaining Mama)

The thing about broken people is that they don't need OUR forgiveness. They need their own. There is a big misconception about all of that. My mama was not a bad person, not a bad mother. I know what you are thinking.
