Every day, I practice gratitude. Being grateful during the difficult times is not easy, and sometimes I find myself not taking the time to be grateful for the small things in life. I try to practice gratitude continuously, throughout the day. When I wake up in the mornings, I think grateful thoughts for the simple gifts in my life -- for my bed and for the unknown day ahead. I even send grateful thoughts for my shower, my clothes, my breakfast, my home and for my husband. I express gratitude for my job, and my coworkers. These simple things are blessings in life.

Other noteworthy news from the game involved Angela and Phil playing catch between the pitcher's mound and first base for a couple of innings, resulting in a three up, three down lineup from the Rabid Squirrels.  Let's hope they tr …

I believe last night’s game three was what’s called a “black and blue” game. Muscles were sore and aching but that didn’t seem to stop us from playing excellent defense. Our defense played so well we were able to finish the game holding our opponents with back to back scoreless innings. Due to these scoreless innings, and a few well timed hits by KKB team members, we won the game, 13-9. Last night’s fielding was unquestionably the best performance we’ve had all year.

I know these games are meant to be played for fun, but that doesn't stop last night from hurting any less.  The cause for the roller coaster ride of emotions came from the top of the third inning with what we thought would be our final at bat, down 8-3.  Slowly but surly, their lead began to decrease until finally it was 8-5 with two outs, the bases loaded, and the home run king himself, Tyler Cline, steps up to the plate.   What happened next was a powerful hit that shot the first pitch straight to center field, finally rolling to a stop at the outfield fence.  Despite a …

The best victory is when the opponent surrenders of its own accord before there are any actual hostilities... It is best to win without fighting. – The Art of War After Wednesday night’s game with Racks & Balls, we all can certainly attest to that statement. Unable to field enough females to play, the game began with a forfeit that led to a scrimmage between the available players on both teams. Unless an event occurs where we win without actually leaving the house, last night will likely go down as the easiest win of the year for the KKB Sox. This improves the Sox record to a …
