That's a wrap!

Baseball, great American pastime.  
Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet.
Take me out to the ball game...
So many iconic sayings and songs about the game of baseball make it seem like the greatest thing ever.
Tonight, it was for the Rays.
Put one in the win column!
It was a great gift to end out the season for Alex...and for his wears-her-heart-on-her-sleeve mom.
Every mom should like to see her son play well, enjoy what he's doing, and succeed individually and as a team.  Success doesn't mean they win every game, but that they learn something as they play and perform better than when they began.
Long, difficult seasons do not always bring out the best in people.  On the ball field or off.
May God give us all an extra measure of grace and compassion through the difficult seasons in our lives.  We all have them.  We all have a chance to finish strong.  We all have a choice on how to react to the unfairness in life.
Tonight, I choose to celebrate the win...while trying to forget learn from the rest.  :)
