One Short--100 Words
Ever feel like you come up one short?
I grew up playing baseball. In those days, you couldn’t start playing until you were 5 or 6.
I’ll never forget batting against 10 year old pitchers! It wasn’t fair—for the 6-year-old batter, that is.
I often came up one short. If I were lucky, I’d bat 3 for 4 in the game. Still, I’d be one short of perfect.
I’ve often come up one short. At work. At home. As a father. As a friend.
Never a good feeling.
Not something to strive for.
