Last week, I lost an Uncle. It was sudden and completely unexpected. It was eerily similar to the loss of my dad. No matter how educated, religious, wealthy, or polished you are death grips like a ferocious beast and instantly changes things. Death plays no favorites; it is an equalizer.
My family came together, as they always do and we remembered, we honored, we celebrated. Death also causes you to appreciate life. The time we have here on earth is finite. None of us know when our time will be up. So, at the cusp of this week, with the memories of Uncle Bobby running through my mind, I’m determined to make the most of each moment. Time is precious and fleeting. It is more valuable than money. It is non-refundable, so use it wisely.
