Soccer Practice- Ask Sue Inspirational Story

There was a young boy who came regularly to soccer practice but never made it to the starting team. While he was practicing,his father would sit at the far end of the field,waiting for him.

The matches began and for four days, the boy didn't show up for practice or the quarter or semi-finals. He appeared for the final game,went to the coach and said, "coach you have always kept me in the reserves and never let me play in the games, but today,please let me play, " the coach said,son I am sorry ,I can't let you,the reputation of the school is at stake and I can't take a chance on you". The boy pleaded, coach I promise I will not let you down,I beg of you,please let me play.

The coach had never seen the boy plead like this before,he said, okay son go play,remember I am going against my better judgment and the reputation of the school is at stake. Don't let me down.

The game started and the boy played like a house on fire, everytime he got the ball,he shot a goal. Needless to say,he was the star of the game,his team had a spectacular win.

When the game finished,the coach went upt to him and said,son how could I have been so wrong? I have never seen you play like thins before. What happened?,how did you play so well?,the boy replied,coach my father is watching me today,the coach turned around and looked ar the place where the boy's father used to sit.

There was no one there he said, "son your father used to sit there when you came for practice,but I do not see anyone there today, "the boy replied coach,there is something I never told you,my father was blind, just four days ago,he died, today is the first day he is watching me from above.

Love Always
