I didn’t write on Friday because I got to go to a Cub’s game.
My first one ever.
People ask me if I am a Cubs or Cards fan..well…we always gravitated to St Louis when the kids were little and then our daughter married a Cub fan and I grew up watching the Big Red Machine back in the days of Johnny Bench and Pete Rose so basically I am just a fan of baseball.
Mostly because it is a quiet game that moves at a pace and with a level of strategy that my mind can wrap around.
So whatever game I attend…the hometown of that team is my team for that day.
My motto is…buy the shirt…enjoy the people watching…eat some over-priced unhealthy food and embrace the moment.
And this beautiful stadium is incredible.
This one and Fenway have found a place in my heart <3
The Cubs lost, but we had a great time.
On Saturday we attended a birthday celebration for Caroline’s second…Graham’s eight…and Emmett’s sixth…
Since getting together has to be squeezed in between ball games, vacations and work they had a three-birds-with-one-stone party…no…that wasn’t the theme…
boys had dinosaurs and Caroline had her beloved Minnie Mouse <3
and it was all hands on deck and still a few who couldn’t be there.
This little dude was a trooper and just celebrated everybody else with a smug smile knowing he shares his birthday with No. One.
Tia made it so we got another pic of the ladies…
and if you are curious if Caroline has managed to wrap her dad around her little finger…
done and done…
This is genius.
This is stuck on my desk next to my computer.
I have no idea why.
I have looked at all our calendars and nothing is written down on that day.
If I made an appointment with you, I have forgotten it.
This is my “why” for getting on here as many of the five weekdays as I can.
It’s a way God has opened for me to make someone laugh or smile or think or feel like they are not alone.
It’s a way to remind us that life is hard, but God is always good…it is not a cliche or something to put on a bumper sticker or t-shirt and then forget.
Write it on your heart and engrave it in your mind … He is faithful.
We are flawed people and we live in a fallen world and in spite of it all, He loves us and provided a way for us to be in relationship with Him through His Son Jesus Christ.
Encourage someone … or at least yourself today…with the truth of that statement.
You are loved <3
