Disclaimer: It’s the weekend. Weekends are busy! So starting today every Saturday & Sunday post in October will be short and sweet!
Free to be vicarious
VICARIOUS: experienced or felt by watching, hearing about, or reading about someone else rather than by doing something yourself.
As we brought children into this world we also gave ourselves permission to be vicarious. We get to experience some great joys in life and opportunities that we didn’t have when we were kids through our very own children.
I never played soccer, my husband never played soccer. But our kids LOVE soccer so WE LOVE SOCCER! What a joy it has been to live vicariously through our children as we watch them on the pitch (that’s field in soccer language).
It’s not just soccer, there are many other ways that we experience joy in life through those four amazing children. But for 6 weeks every fall and spring we spend our Saturdays hunting for shin guards, filling water bottles, kicking around a soccer ball and just loving life on the pitch!
