Swing All the Way Through
From time to time, I’ve written about a situation involving one of my kids, and after observing something recently, it’s a huge metaphor for what every one of us does in our busy lives.
Emily plays softball, and it’s easy to see she loves it. Defensively, her glove meets the ball hit at nearly any angle in the outfield and she can come up with some great catches. Offensively, she’s fast. She’s a lefty and was taught to slap last year, so has added some nice things to her hitting repertoire. She’s somewhat short and is solid. Because of this, opposing teams don’t see her speed until they’ve just picked up the ball and she’s already at first base. It’s a fun thing to watch.
