team work

It was 6th grade and my team shirt was orange.  I think we were the Tigers.  I played shortstop and second base, and I was just good enough and competitive enough to realize that I might thrive on team sports.  I loved the idea of everyone cheering each other on and working for a win.  It was so incredibly invigorating.

I am still a team kind of girl.  I like to collaborate in my teaching.  I like working with other people in my church responsibilities.  I like being in a family and pitching in together.  And although I have liked my private time exercising lately, to me there is nothing like a meeting of the minds for a common cause.

Seriously, where would we be without our teams?

We all have our people and working with those people is just so inspiring....

I'm with you on that one! There's nothing like team work. Somehow when you work together as a team life seems to run smoother and your friendships become anchored.

Love being part of a bigger team. Then I like to go home and be by myself too!

I love teamwork - but I'm not a massive fan of competition. So I didn't get on so well with team sports!
