Well yesterday the Indians played their last game of the season.  We weren’t ready for the season to be over.  We wanted to win the World Series.  We didn’t want to hear “Wait until next year” one more time.  The Butcher and I were fortunate (or unfortunate–depending on your viewpoint) to be at the game yesterday.  We have enjoyed a lot of games at Jacobs’ Field.

It wasn’t the Indians day.  It wasn’t their season.  It wasn’t their year.  Sometimes, I invest way too much energy in professional sports.  I get so involved.  I can get down about the Indians. I start looking around.   I have so very much to be thankful for.  I see so many things to be upset about.  I am doing a little reflecting today.  I’m going to redirect some of the energy that I have been spending on Professional Sports and putting it somewhere that I can make a difference.

Project Ed Bear is a Non-profit that really tugs at my heart.  It provides comfort to little kids that are diagnosed with Cancer.  This is somewhere that I can make a difference.

I am challenging you to find a place where you can make a difference and go for it.  Let me know what your passion is.  Get outside.  Smell the roses.  Take a walk.  Do something kind for someone.

That’s all for today.  Until next time from our Butcher Block to your Table.
