Gratitude and the Holidays

Sometimes I think I do a lot of venting on this blog. By opening myself up to the world and writing my innermost thoughts for everyone to read, I am afraid I may sometimes come across as ungrateful; the same goes for my twitter, where I often lack a filter. Hopefully it’s just my ultra-sensitivity making me feel this way, but in the event I am indeed perceived as I just described, I want to clear the air.
I am utterly and unconditionally grateful to God for the life I have. I may complain at times, but I have never lost sight of the fact that I am blessed beyond measure. I was born into a family that has always loved and supported me and I have never had to go without. It’s as simple as this – I have always had a roof over my head, plenty to wear and a fridge full of food – making me better off than 95% of the people in the ENTIRE world and those who don’t even have clean water to drink. For that, I will never stop being grateful. It truly is that simple.
Regardless of what lies ahead for David and me in the world of baseball, I know that we have each other. The level of stress, discomfort, or whatever you want to call it, in our lives at any given time will always fluctuate, whether it be for health, financial or other reasons, but our outlook must always remain positive. At the end of the day, everyone will face myriad challenges in their life, but it is all the way you look at it.
So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to scream at the roof tops just how grateful I am for my life. I also want to thank all my readers for stopping by or even following my journey from day one – you are appreciated.
In observation of the holidays, I have decided I am going to take a short break from blogging until Spring Training. Don’t worry! David and I will be reporting early so you won’t have to wait until March to hear from me. If something crazy happens before, like say a trade, well then of course I will be popping in for a post or maybe two. 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays!
Until next year,
Camille
