I've mentioned before that my first born son LOVES baseball. He's been good at it since he first began back 5 years ago in Tball, but he's never been THE BEST. He's for sure a help to his team. He works really hard and he talks about baseball about 55% of his day. Yes, he wants to play MLB some day. I don't know if he ever will, but he has that goal and he's gradually working at accomplishing that goal.
When I watch my son play baseball...my heart swells. I get really into it WITH him and I LOVE that he and I can connect through our LOVE of sports. Thank you God for him! The gift that he is to our family and the relationship we have that's different than what I have with any other child...that is strengthened by our love, excitement and knowledge of sports. I am convinced 100% that God gave me a love for sports so that I could connect with this little boy in his unique way! I am grateful for THIS!!
