Whenever I am not traveling for softball, it is very important to me to be able to go to church. It's so coincidental that the messages seem to always be so relative to what I have going on.
A recent message was about Gratitude. Our pastor gave us examples of what to be grateful for, and I related these to softball, of course!! I am grateful for the sport and the ability to play. I am grateful for who has been placed in my path to help me succeed. I am grateful for the ability to learn and grow. I am grateful for what He hasn't done yet - but I know He is going to help me fulfill my desire to play college softball! I am grateful for the situations He allows me to go through - because this softball journey is sure full of ups and downs!! To sum it up and quoting my pastor, " Gratitude is the gasoline that fuels your life forward."
Also pointed out, is I am happy because I am thankful.....I am thankful for all that softball has done for me, and I remain committed to putting in the work to stay on this journey as long as I can.
