Last week I lost one of the most powerful influences I have had the pleasure to have in my life. After 9 years of battling cancer god called him home at the young age of 52. Of course I was crushed, still am and a part of me will always be broken but it was a reminder from god, time is short. We live our life every day with the notion that our family, friends & co-workers that we spend time with will be there the next day. We take for granted the conversations, laughs, hugs we have with each person that is in our life when in a brief gust of wind it can be taken away. Between this recent event and the event in Florida’s school shooting it should be an eye opener to us all that our loved loves can be taken away in an instant. I try to focus everyday to be kind to those who I come in contact with for I might be that one kind compliment or hug they might receive to have impact on them. Mitch Albom’s book “The Five People You Meet In Heaven” opens you up to the notion that every person you come in contact with is there for purpose, rather for you to impact them or for them to impact you. And if you think about that for a minute and some of the people you have currently in your life or those you met randomly they impacted you someway. As our world seems to be falling apart with evil lets remember our purpose and what God’s perspective he has in store for us. Let’s embrace everything we see, touch, feel, hear….everything is temporary & one day it will all go away. People and circumstances will all change & we will be living another life so embrace each second, minute, hour spent in your life NOW. Not what is in store for the future because nothing is promised or certain. Let’s take the NOW moments and make them EXTRA ORDINARY moments. Most important tell those who are in your life everyday what they mean to you so you in the case of the “unknown” you know they knew what they meant to you. I can say that with my mentor Brian I had the pleasure to tell him as much as I could how important he was to me, but his loss was another reminder from God to me that I must never forget EVER to communicate my love to others. And to never take for granted TIME here in earth, it is short, let your legacy be GOD’S PERSPECTIVE!
