Baseball and Dementia

I cannot believe how fast October is flying by. And today, at my house here in Kansas, we had our first snow. What the heck is that all about?? Snow in October! I am still trying to Practice Patience and stay involved in The Nester's 31 Day challenge. I refuse to fail at anything. And all of this talking about patience and researching patience just might help me somehow. Anyway, if you want to read the rest of my posts you can just click here for a list of them.
Until just a little bit ago I had never heard of Chuck Tanner. Have you? He was a left fielder and a manager in major league baseball in the late 1970's. The only reason I know about him now is that I was researching some quotes about being patient and I found this:

   "There are three secrets to managing. The first secret is to have patience.
 The second is to be patient. And the third most important
secret is patience."

Now I think that could fit a lot of different things besides just managing a major league baseball team. In fact, I think it is the answer to why I am trying to learn to be a more patient person. I need to remember those three secrets when I am dealing with my beloved husband and his dementia. And what better way to handle two teenagers than with more patience.
