When placing a bet at the Kentucky Derby, there are so many records and stats to study and consider. This includes the path that brought those horses from remote pastures to the starting gate. It doesn’t take much for me to see the similarities for us. As people, who have lived a lot of years that included high of highs and low of lows; as people, who have lost much and suffered though hard seasons; as people, who fought for health both mental and physical; and as people, we often forget to pause and breathe and see that we are all people on a path. At times, fighting to get to the starting gate; and at other times, fighting to get out of the starting gate.
No matter what season of life we are in right now, I hope and pray for each of us to have the courage and tenacity to fight the good fight. At times, we all need a reminder from our cheering section; so here and now, I am yours. I hope when you see this basket you will think about me cheering you on as you race around the track. I’m Betting On You because your path has (and continues to be) a proven track record of staying in the race no matter what is thrown at you. Pandemic, polar vortex ice storm, broken bones, scary diagnosis… I’m Betting On You to give it your all, and I promise to be giving it my all right alongside you.
