Sometimes we come up with these grand plans and schemes for life. We are determined to accomplish them and have things end a certain way. Then that curve ball gets thrown at you. You hit it, you just aren't sure where it lands. So you pick up your feet and start running. The crazy part is no matter how long it takes you to get there, you always end up back at home plate!

In life we are up at bat many times and thrown many curve balls. The object of the game is to keep picking up your feet and keep running those bases.

Here I am now. Running the bases, not really sure when I will make it home. I am in it for the whole game, ready to play it out as long as it takes. And although right now I cannot really feel inside what it will feel like when my foot lands on homeplate in the back of my mind I know it will eventually happen. So I am keeping my eye on the ball and my head in the game. Experiencing the game as it comes.
