If you are reading this post you have already received the best Christmas gift there is to have. Your life and all its potential is yours to control from this point forward. But a gift is for sharing and your life is not an exception. In fact, your life is made more meaningful by its interaction with others.
Both of my parents came from poor families and were raised during the Great Depression. It was not unusual for them to receive an apple, an orange or even a popcorn ball for Christmas.
The end of World War II and their entering the workplace during the steel making renaissance are the main factors that caused my parents and millions like them to lavish expensive gifts on their children.
But the best gifts were the lessons passed on by my parents. Lessons of sharing, caring, making do and making something useful of yourself through personal pride and perseverance. All things that were learned during their poor impoverished years.
Henry Ford said famously,”Whether you think you can, or think you can’t; you’re right.”
Along the way, today and everyday ahead; don’t hesitate to share of yourself and your gift of life. Otherwise, what’s the point?
To me, that’s really what this forum is all about.
Wishing you the best in all your baseball endeavors.
