My uncle recently shared some of his writing with me and one piece in particular that I connected with is entitled Curve Balls. Uncle Ron says, “Curve Balls was written for a friend’s daughter who was attending a high school retreat and needed letters from people she knew. She lost her 45 year old mother to cancer a couple of years before attending the retreat. Curve Balls was my statement of her strength and ability to move forward.”
Who in this life hasn’t been thrown a curve ball?
Do you have the strength and ability to move forward?
With his permission I share Curve Balls with you today.

Sometimes life throws us a curve ball.
Sometimes we hit it.
Sometimes we don’t.
Sometimes we lose site of the fact that one time at bat doesn’t represent the results of the entire game and that one game doesn’t represent the entire season.
Throughout the game of life we experience batting slumps and losing streaks but we also experience hitting and winning streaks.
Some would tell us that it is not all about winning while others will tell us that it is only about winning.
Win or lose, never forget that as the innings pass there will be more times at bat and more games to play. Most important is to ensure that each time at bat represents our best effort.
When it’s your turn at bat are you hitting with your best effort?
