In my book - a smile is worth the gold

Once again, I am up late watching the Olympics. Usually, I fall asleep during the throws of competition. However, tonight, I was wide awake because a much deserved gold medal was won. (That and we got a new puppy - but, that's a different blog for a different time!) Shawn Johnson won her first gold of the 2008 games in the balance beam competition...and I couldn't be happier! Although her teammate, Nastia, is more graceful and was the all around gold winner...Shawn is just more entertaining to watch because of that contagious smile! You can't help but to smile when you see her smile and her little powerhouse body. After she won, they showed her parents in the crowd. Her mom was almost heaving from crying so hard. Her father turned to his wife and gave her a great big hug and they just hugged and cried...and cried and hugged...and I cried just watching them!
