Portents and Possibilities

Well, the plumbing leaks a little bit, but it hasn’t exploded and gushed water all over the bathroom in over a week.

The Cardinals are leading their division by three games in the final weeks of the season. True, the Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers are both close on their heels and both having winning streaks that prove they are capable of overtaking the Cards. The division is within reach, but not yet won.

I have been invited to substitute teacher orientation next month, so the possibility of returning to classrooms is also within reach for me. That will solve some money troubles and give me a chance to do something I love once again.

Nothing is ever guaranteed in life. Not working plumbing. Not having a winning team to root for. Not being well enough to earn money for the thing I was born to do.

But bad things are not the only things that happen in life. Sometimes you get a chance to cheer. A chance to celebrate. Sometimes life is good. So, we keep living and hoping, and enjoying what we can when we can… sometimes with a can of Gatorade.

  1. Love the Cardiac Cards. Buckle up.

  2. Cautious optimism is a good thing. It’s the ability to have hope with an understanding that $hit happens. Go Cards… and soon Let’s Go Blues!
