After 71 years of failing to reach the World Series, last night the Chicago Cubs forced Game 7 with a Grand Slam.
A few days ago, many people thought the series was over. Months ago, most people would NOT have imagined the Cubs in Game 7.
Will they win the World Series for the first time in 108 years? No one knows. But for me, the joy is in the idea that it COULD happen. This improbable possibility fills me with such hope for me, for you, and for the world.
If this opportunity can exist for baseball players in Chicago, just imagine what might happen in YOUR LIFE today, tomorrow, or in the days ahead!
Anything is possible. There is always hope.
UPDATE: They won. Congrats to the Chicago Cubs & their legions of fans who have waited & believed.
