2015 has been a rough year for me and my small group of friends. Each person and/or couple has lost someone close in their family. Today is a somber day as another friend lost a parent. This is all very sudden and it’s all still being processed mentally and emotionally.

Sometimes you look at the calendar and think, “Wow, it’s the end of the year already? Where did it go?” Not this year. Unfortunately this year has dragged on and for once I can’t wait to turn the page on it.

Man, life’s funny. Growing up I thought my late-20s would be filled with me hitting my peak years in my professional baseball career (ha!). Instead I’m fighting and clawing to figure out success and how to build a meaningful existence.

I’m drawing a blank on what else to write today. I feel for my friends. I know we’ll all weather this storm together and be stronger in the end. But for today and for the near future it’s going to hurt. All I can say is that I’m going to try to be there as much as I can.

That’s all I got today.
