Today was the sectional baseball game, it was our final game of the high school career. Although our season was not the greatest I am grateful for my son’s chance to play.
To say our season was not the greatest is actually an understatement. I find pearls in the middle of it. We learned to lose a lot. That’s funny, right there.
Another Pearl is that our boys were able to walk out on the field and play. No, it wasn’t always the best performance, but there are some high school students that couldn’t play baseball because they are unable to walk by themselves or even talk.
It’s always a learning experience to be a part of a team. Sometimes the experience is bad, but these experiences are still good learning experiences for the kids. Life does not give us what we want most of the time. So learning how to deal with uncomfortable situations is good for their young minds.
My wonderful husband in spite of not sleeping well last night, helped me do some decorating in the garage for our upcoming open house. We twirled streamers, it was fun and memorable.
We then enjoyed attending another open house. This season is full of celebration. On Saturday we will get to attend the actual graduation. Seems like a graduation is like a wedding, you spend months getting ready for it and then it’s over in a flash.
The Pearl today is the joy of getting to celebrate the good and the bad. Thank you Jesus that we have brains that allow us to walk and talk and think.
