Hi everyone. Believe it or not, this is the first opportunity in weeks that I have had to sit down in front of an actual computer and put enough words together for a blog post. Baseball season is long and every day is ground hog day, so writing these posts takes conscious effort.
Before I get into my love and appreciation for the Yankees, I want to spill a little news I have been keeping quiet for some time. David and I spent the better part of April and May apart while I was filming a TV show that is set to air on August 6th. The show has officially been named “Hot Listings Miami” and it will air on Style Network. David and I are rather private people, but nonetheless, this year has required our doors be open to the public more so than ever. This is something I am learning to take in strides and it has only made me emotionally stronger.
Moving onto the title of this post. David and I have been extremely blessed in life and being a part of the Yankees organization is just another example of how God has chosen to bless us. David and I know that tomorrow is not promised to us and we consciously try to live every day grateful for the gifts we have been given. The Yankees have been nothing short of amazing during our transition from AAA to the big leagues. Everyone from the staff to the owners do a superb job of making you feel at home – despite the nerves that come with being a rookie. I have nothing but great things to say about the time we have spent with this organization and I want to truly thank them for making it a point to care.
That being said, David said it once in an interview – “I can only control what I can control. We have to take it one day at a time and if I am meant to be here for 15 years or 30 days, it’s not my choice. If I had it my way I would play baseball my whole life. It’s a matter of taking it one day at a time and hoping that you can do whatever the good Lord has planned for you and spread his word.”
Thank you and God Bless,
This year has been full of blessings for David and me. God has put us right where he wants us and surrounded us with like-minded Christians. That being said, I want to dedicated this post to a man that David has had the honor of playing with this year – the last year this opportunity would be afforded to him -Mariano Rivera.
Below is an article well worth reading and one that resonates fully with how David and I view the life we’ve been dealt by none-other than, our Lord. I hope you enjoy!
I had the pleasure of meeting MLB.com PRO Blogger Camille Campins Adams and her husband, Yankees infielder David Adams, on Thursday during their visit to the MLB Fan Cave in New York. You can follow My Serendipitous Life as a Baseball Wife (note new URL) and say hi there in the comments anytime. Here is a flip video I took of the newly expecting parents: …
As my twitter followers may know, I have been very excited about David’s walk-out song this year. I absolutely love this song and the fact that it gives us the opportunity to Glorify God is the best part.
That being said, ever since David got called up to the Majors he hasn’t had the chance to walk-out to it. I have seen people commenting about Marilyn Manson and a bunch of other songs playing when David has come up to bat so I wanted to clarify this a bit.
P.S. I know I haven’t addressed all the changes that have occurred for David and I this past week but I plan to. It has been a very busy week so sit tight.
I wanted to write a quick post wishing everyone a happy mother’s day. Today is a very special day after all and all the amazing women out there who have cared for a child, human or otherwise, deserve a whole lot of love.
That being said, when I texted all of my mom friends today, much to my surprise, I received a bunch of “You too’s!” This really got me thinking. What better day than today to announce one of my big surprises?!
You may have guessed it by now, and YES, David and I are expecting our first two-legged child! Since we have four children already that move around on four legs, I felt it worth noting that this one will in fact walk upright on only two legs. (I guess we are moving up in the world – pun intended).
So there you have it folks! David and I are due to have our first human baby on October 31st. None other than Halloween! I guess my three black cats are a good omen after all.
‘Till next time!
Well, it has been a long time since I have written a post. This spring has been a whirlwind for David and I in a multitude of ways. I have been standing at a crossroads the past few months that left me struggling with opening up about our baseball life. A great portion of our daily lives are consumed by this career that David chose to pursue, subsequently making it hard to open up about it when what you are really seeking is discretion and privacy.
Since this blog is about my serendipitous life as a baseball wife, I am breaking my silence for the sake of the fans and our friends and family who read this blog.
2013 has turned out to be a year of growth and change. So much has happened in a short amount of time but all according to God’s will and, of course, in His timing. I always say not to have many expectations in life because life hardly goes as planned and oh boy, have I witnessed that first hand!
Nevertheless, this year has been very exciting and I know we are just starting to chip away at it. There is a lot of exciting news on the way but I’ll be holding out for just a little while longer.
Contrary to popular opinion, MLB players do not have free tickets to hand out for every game. If they did, I'd be doing twitter ticket giveaways way more often because I'd love to get more people out to enjoy a ball game. Instead, we are allotted 4 family tickets and 2 friends tickets to purchase at around 40% of their face value, which varies from ballpark to ballpark.
It was just before 7 AM and I was on my way home this morning after dropping David off at the baseball complex. Suddenly, a song that I have heard a million times over began playing on the radio, but this time I felt like it was speaking directly to me. Life has its ups and downs and for those of you who know David and I, you are likely aware of the struggles we have faced in our lives. Some, we have endured in public and others in private. Whether you are dealing with a loss in your family, a sudden career change, illness, or the basic struggles of daily life, I truly believe that God is with you through it all.
It hasn’t been the “easiest” few years for David and I and, of course, that is relative, but I have never felt closer to God than I do today. He is with us through the good times, but even more so through the hard times. So today I would like to share with you the song that spoke to me. Casting Crowns is one of my all-time favorite Christian bands and this song is one of my favorites in their collection. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and that it speaks to you the way it has to me.
