Better than winning
This past Saturday, Mississippi State played basketball against our bitter, in-state rival, Ole Miss. Mississippi State has not had a stellar basketball season and we weren't anticipated to beat Ole Miss this weekend in Starkville (the home of Mississippi State). However, the Bulldogs pulled out a 73-67 victory against the Bears!
The next morning, as we were getting ready for church, I asked Philip if he wanted to wear his brown or maroon sweater. He answered, "The maroon one to celebrate Mississippi State's win!" His enthusiasm was right on and I gladly pulled out that maroon sweater. However, I did have to correct him on this one small point: "Honey, beating Ole Miss is better than winning."
