Amazing shows tonight. I should’ve taken pictures since they’re worth a thousand words and I don’t even know why I started writing. Let me explain. One day my son had a tee ball game, and he hit the ball so hard that it line drived right into some kid’s gut. (I’m the Coach) We stopped game and made sure the other child was alright. He was and we continued the game. What we didn’t do was checkout my guy to make sure he was alright, which he wasn’t. On his next at bat, everyone’s yelling to move back, “remember what happened last time!” Everyone is ready for him to crush it, then he hits this little dribbler and I could tell he didn’t try his hardest. I called a mini timeout and pulled him to the side. In our conversation, he reveals to me that he was afraid that he would hurt someone again. I told him that I know it doesn’t feel good to hurt anyone, but you work on this everyday, so you have to accept this greatness that you’ve created. Sometimes, I want things for others, but it’s my son who help me understand that I’m working everyday and that’s why the gates are open. It doesn’t Just happen, and you can never be afraid to accept that keys to the path that you created. AND when you have a gift, it’s your duty to nurture it.
