COT – My youngest had trouble sleeping last night. I worked on getting him settled down. (My wife was not feeling well and asleep or else she might have joined the effort too.) It took some tries – but there he was in the morning – asleep in our bed. For me it was a reminder of both how powerful we are and how powerless we are with others. I did my best to get him to sleep – but / and in the end I could not fall asleep for him. We can walk alongside others, but we can’t do things for them. There is a helpful reminder in there somewhere.

Finally, it was great to see @McFeely! He was the baseball coach for both of my boys over 5 years. I learned a lot as an assistant coach watching him do his thing in trying make T-ball meaningful and magical. I am glad to re-join with him in the gloom! See you out there coach!
