My nine-year old asked, "Mom, do you think I can play in the NFL one day?" A huge smile came across my face because you have to know that my son is only 65 pounds, wet. "You can do anything you put your mind to. Dream big," I told him. I too loved sports as a kid, softball being my forte. And while I still continue to play the sport in a local women's town league, I am no Kim Clijsters. Terry my biz partner, having played tennis as a child, had a much better shot at mastering the game of tennis than I did.
To see Kim Clijsters replicate her US Open victory of some 3 years ago was an awe inspiring moment. Only this time she celebrated on court with her 18-month-old daughter, Jada. The last woman to win after having children was Evonne Goolagong Cawley, (who by the way Terry had the opportunity to play against in her prime) who won at Wimbledon in 1980. Evonne claimed her title three years after her daughter Kelly was born. How very “Dana Torres” of them! I am sure that someone along the way told these remarkable women to "Dream Big" as well, and, dream they did!
