I, of course, a coach’s wife. But being a coach’s wife means so much more than merely being a coach’s wife.
I am a cheerleader and supporter in tragic losses as well as exciting wins.
I am a nail-biter and hair-puller in the bottom of the ninth and other nerve-racking moments.
I am a chef and a baker.
I am a photographer.
I am a stat-keeper during games.
I am a tallier and calculator of stats after games.
I am a team mom.
I am a teacher.
I am a reporter in those moments when the coaches must know.
I am a social worker and sometimes a counselor.
I am a sounding board and secret-keeper.
I am a provider of sustenance, encouragement, and support.
I am a worrier.
I am a recruiter.
I am a driver.
I am a team treasurer.
I am a pizza-orderer in the top of the seventh.
I am an organizer, distributer, and deliverer of equipment and uniforms.
I am and I do whatever is needed in whatever situation arises. These are only a few of the things on the list of what being a coach’s wife has meant to me.
