It wasn't just me retiring. We retired. Baseball was our job. We did it as a team, and there was no other way it could have worked. I might have been the one on the field. I might have been the face of our family in the game and in the community. But we did it -- me, my wife, and our children -- as a team.
In each of these three life lessons I have learned that connecting to that greater force I call God puts me right where I need to be. When life is rolling along without much effort, don't forget to be thankful. Let your cup fill up and overflow. Share your gifts with others, count your blessings, and thank God for this miracle called life.
