Life is a Pink Cowboy Hat Filled with Baseballs

Have you ever tried throwing a basket of balls up in the air and catching them all as they land? No? Try it sometime. It's true you can't catch them all, but maybe that's the point. Maybe you don't need to catch them all. Maybe, just maybe, it's okay to let some of them go. Later, if you felt so inclined, you could pick up some of the balls that landed in the grass. Or, you could let someone else start a game with them.

You are pretty smart and I know you have figured out my little metaphor by now. Yes, I did put all the pieces of my life in a basket and throw them up in the air. If you guessed that I didn't catch them all, you win the Willkie button for today. 


What? You've never been awarded a Willkie button before? Bubba loved to give them out. There is a neat Life magazine article about Wendell Willkie and his buttons on Google Books.

Back to my basket and my balls.

Unlike this girl:




and this boy:

I have no sports ability beyond swimming and walking and I would actually be afraid to throw a basket of balls up in the air, because they might land on my head! Let's just say that things have been pretty different around here. The only game I have been playing is the spend time with family and friends game. And it's been fun. 

But, I'm itching to get back to work. Think I'll go pick up some of those balls. 

Happy Wednesday!
