The colour of the ribbon didn’t matter

My awesome daughter came first in a running race at school as the girl who was in front of her tripped and fell. The girl who fell was so devastated at not winning that my daughter swapped ribbons with her, bringing home a fourth-place ribbon instead of first.

The girls are only 6 years old. The fourth-place ribbon melts my heart and means more than any first ever could. My daughter said the colour of the ribbon didn’t matter; she just cared that her friend not be upset. – Sarah
