What does that make you think? When you hear someone refer to a person having two or three strikes? I would venture a guess that most people are filling in the words "....and your out!"
I recently watched a show on TV where the response to "You have three strikes" was something to the effect of "WOW! a perfect start to my bowling game. I hope that I get another strike!"
I have often talked about viewpoints. I work hard to find a positive viewpoint. Life just seems to go easier when you are looking at the positive side of things. At the same time I am a realist. I do acknowledge that not everything is sunshine and roses. (Well maybe everything is roses - - a delicate yet beautiful flower that has a fabulous fragrance and a stem full of thorns that must be handled very carefully.)
Here is a challenge, next time someone starts a sentence by saying, "S/He has two strikes. One more and ....." Break into their sentence and say, "...and they will have a perfect 10th frame!" Smile and have a beautiful day.
