final game

Wednesday, May 20th
This year's Birthday Season has been filled with numerous baseball games.
Tonight was the final game of the season.
I had responsibilities at church, so I arrived a little late to the game.
We were ahead when I arrived. Then the opposing team tied up the game.
Our at bat brought a run across the plate.  It was an exciting game to watch.
Top of the final inning found the opposing team with the bases loaded and nobody out.
We changed pitchers.
He came in and struck out the first batter he faced.
On a passed ball, the player on third base tried to make it home, but our catcher tagged him out in a close play at the plate.
Two runs scored.
Our pitcher's next throw was a strike.
On the second pitch, the batter swung and missed.
The third pitch...swing and a miss!
Three runs scored...The Reds end their season with a WIN!
What a game!!!
Alex was walked and made it around the bases to score a run with his first at bat.  He struck out his second at bat, but he wasn't down about it.  I am so proud of the progress he has made this season and of the way in which he has handled himself on the field.  He has made his mama proud. ♥  There is no better gift.

Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
