April 27 – triumphant

☆  triumphant 勝利を収めた


If you are feeling triumphant, you are feeling happy because you have succeeded in something. My oldest son is currently playing in his soccer club’s “development team.” This means that they are playing against kids who are one year older than them. When they lose, of course they are disappointed, but it’s all good experience for next year, when they play in the real state league for their age group.

This year, though, when they win, wow! They feel so triumphant!! They get so excited at having beat a team that is a year older, a year more experienced than them. When they give a cheer at the end, their voices are so triumphant. As a parent, it’s fun to seem them all so happy as a team about their success.

When have you felt triumphant recently?
