Both TJ and Diana qualified for the Olympics! I am so proud and happy for them. They had some challenges, but they stayed strong and succeeded. I felt the passion of our team today. Everyone was cheering for TJ and Diana. I felt the love for each other, because all of us were yelling, hugging, clapping, cheering for their every match. Today reminded me that even though we all have different backgrounds or different thinking, we all still have in common the passion for our sport and nation. Us having the opportunity to represent our God, nation, family, coaches, friends, and others. How one simple passion can unite us in love and friendship...Steven and I go tomorrow. Again, I pray that God's Will be done. I am excited and nervous. However, I am also at peace, because I know that God is in control. All I have to do is BELIEVE in myself and TRUST in Him!!!
