Joy Break: ‘I Got This!’
When we turn on our television or smart phones we are bombarded with news that brings us down. Where are all the good stories? Those stories are still there. Here’s one that we hope will bless you, one that affirms the value of each life.
A young woman with Down Syndrome will probably never forget today at the PGA’s Phoenix Open. Amy not only met golf pros Gary Woodward and Matt Kuchar, but they took her on the course with them. Her reaction to playing with the guys — and waving to the large crowd — was priceless. “They love me!” she told her father. “I know, how about that?” he said as he tied her pink and white shoes.
Just before she took her first shot from the fairway of the 16th hole, her dad stood behind her and placed his hands on her shoulders. “You got this, kiddo,” he told her. “Yeah, I got this,” she repeated.
As she stood with golf club in hand before each shot, she kept telling herself, “I got this,” or “you can do this!” And boy, could she! A beautiful shot down the fairway. A great shot out of the bunker onto the green. And her putt? Buried it.
Watch … and watch out, Tiger!
No one will play No. 16 at The Stadium Course better than Amy this week. 👏 👏 👏 pic.twitter.com/iyydmTKK8R
