Here are some of my former teammates at the dinner. Brie, Ash, and Cat. We are all still close.
People don't usually understand how important volleyball was to me and how much a part of me it was- the girls were my family, as were the coaches, and I got to do something I was good at. I used to miss those volleyball/college days so badly I could just cry- now I see my beautiful girls and they come running up for hugs and I know that it's all how it should be. I was pregnant during my last season, so I knew it was going to be my last even though no one else did. I got closure, which I was grateful for. I still have 1 year of eligibility that I didn't go back and use after I had the girls, although I was tempted. I'm glad I didn't use it- I would have missed so much of the first 7 months of the twins' lives had I done it.
I guess God DOES know us better than we know ourselves, huh?
Here are 2 of the greatest blessings that came from volleyball- Brie and Ashley. They were 2 of my bridesmaids and are still 2 of my best friends.
Cal State is now ranked #3 in the nation in Division 2. They will host Regionals- good luck guys!
