Girls Coaching Girls

Fifteen years ago, Emily coached my daughter swimming. When I see her mother Eleanor at the grocery store, I smile, now, a decade and half later. Sometimes, I still say thanks. I always ask how she's doing. I still care. Emily is now married with two little girls of her own. I wish for her and her daughters some great upcoming girl coaches.

My daughter taught tennis this summer. Yesterday, Amelia's mom, Kristin gave her a wonderful thank you. To Kristin, thanks for showing me, someone you don't know and won't recognize at the grocery, that you value my daughter's coaching in Amelia's life as I have Emily's.

What a lovely gift to see my daughter through someone else's eyes. Thank you Kristin.

Girls coaching girls, very powerful.


Full disclosure: My aunt Nancy coached basketball at Pomona. She was the winningest coach in their history.

Ida Sherwood Bettis is my paternal grand mother. Aunt Clara is my great aunt. I can remember every nooks and crany of that house and yard...
