As I sit here feeling incredibly messy and not very “Coach Joelle-ish” I want to thank you for loving me in my messiness.
Joan and Tonetta, thank you for loving me when I have forgotten who I am and for thinking I am “cute” in my lost-ness – my gratitude is beyond words. My beautiful Jeffrey – thank you for loving me for all I am and all I am not and for having the insight to put a Lebron James bobble head and Fred Flinstone on my desk in the middle of my moment of misery.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for allowing me to be a sloppy mess and for that to be ok. May each and every one of you have people you can be messy with.
In messiness and love,
