A Trip to My Temple



A temple (from the Latin word templum) is a structure reserved for religious or spiritual activities, such as prayer.

I visited MY temple this weekend.  It's a place I hold very close.  It's the baseball stadium in Cleveland.

I receive a great amount of peace & joy whenever I visit this special place.  And a lot of this feeling comes from the relationship I had with my Dad.

He was the one that first exposed me to the sport of baseball, whether it was a game of catch in the backyard, or a trip to a big league ballpark.



Whenever I got back to Progressive Field in Cleveland where the Indians play, my first stop is a visit to Heritage Park in centerfield.  That is where all the Hall of Famers and all-time greats are honored...it is also where I honored my Dad with a Memorial brick with his name on it. 

And when I see the brick with my Dad's name on it, it instantly feel his presence.

That's my special place...MY temple.  I'd love to hear about yours.
