Understanding the Game

  Life is like a football game, sometimes you get traded, and sometimes you negotiate a better contract, sometimes you blitz and sometimes you fumble.  Somewhere around center field, if you are lucky, you understand it is not about the plays in the game, it is about being able to play the game.

I read this somewhere and thought it was good. So many times in our lives we are so wrapped up in winning that we never enjoy living. My greatest insight came this year at a very high price. My sister died of breast cancer five days after my birthday; it instantly gave me the insight of  how important it is to know the difference between the plays in the game and the opportunity to have another day to play the game called life. 

           May you always have joy in your life
A vision for tomorrow
And wisdom to know the value of both

Wishing you much joy,
