It's another spring
and another baseball season.
For five years now, Spring and most Falls
find our family out on the baseball fields.
Sometimes we are huddled under coats and blankets,
with hats and gloves and shivers and hot chocolate
steaming from white styrofoam cups
dotted with little teeth marks.
Other times we are found sweaty and hot,
reeking of sunscreen and bug spray and sweat,
the reddish dirt of the fields coating us bronze.
But always you will find us cheering on Chris's team,
shouting words of congratulations or encouragement.
This year, unfortunately, we have had to dig deep
to find those encouraging words
in the face of loss after loss.
Fortunately, we are blessed with a few boys
who have such happy natures and don't let much get them down.
Three cheers for the "Glass Half Full" people!
