UNIVERSE AND WEAVE IN HARMONY

I   was told about a young LADY of 15 years old in the US OPEN QUEENS TENNIS CENTER who was in the    “QUALIES”    ““(i.e. qualification rounds)…—it was great!  The young 15 year old black(African American girl…who was representing the United States…first name was Angela!~  Great!  She was playing against a young lady from Portogal named Michelle!

I heard that Angela had been to a tennis camp/highschool in Florida.  She played with the intensity of a pro! 

  The young lady and her opponent played a very strong 6 matches or so.  It was great to watch….except for the   grunts and squeals and     “COME ON(S)!!!!!” the youngs ladies    would yell during   extremely intense moments of their game together!  

  My son who is working on his skills was so excited from watching the game played the ‘right’ way…could not wait to go get a hold of his tennis racket.

  My son has a JAPANESE MADE YONEX! (15 year old Angela played her game with a BABALOT TENNIS RACKET!) 

 My son…. Jay wants a lighter racket now.  He says the Yonex is heavier than most!

My son was inspired to see a young African American the same age as himself playing in the QUALIES….Now my kid has stronger aspirations.  Where will his goals take him?  To College….to the Pros—who knows.?!!!!

  Take out the time and run over to see the US OPEN!  TENNIS IS A PROGRAM THAT THE WHOLE FAMILY CAN GET INVOLVED IN AND IT IS A BEAUTIFUL AREA IN WHICH TO HELP BUILD TEENAGE SELFESTEEM!

IF YOU ARE A PARENT…IT IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL THING…TO SEE YOUR CHILD HAPPY IN AN ACTIVITY THAT BUILDS HIS/OR HER MOTIVATION AND GOALS. 

I MUST HONESTLY TELL YOU THAT MY FAITH IN THE ONE ABOVE HAS INCREASED WHEN I SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF THE CHILD I BROUGHT INTO THIS WORLD.  I SEE THAT AS THE SAY….PLANT THE SEEDS,  WATER THEM AND  WATCH THEM GROW!

GO OUT TODAY AND GATHER YOUR FAMILY AROUND YOU AND SEE THE MIRACLES TAKE PLACE!—-

AND DON’T FORGET……..

 

US OPEN IS HISTORY IN THE MAKING!!!!
