Default A Note Worth Sharing

When I started the Tim Russert string I mentioned that I had been writing notes to NBC friends about the tragedy. I thought you would appreciate a quick excerpt from one of the replies. . .

We're all gonna miss Tim very much. Already do. His death reminds us not to put off what we've planned.

How true that is, and may we all try to implement that sentiment into our daily lives. Thanks for sharing, Ar!

Never a truer word was written! Since my "health problem" in Feb. of '07, I've learned to do exactly that. Never put off what you really want to do, if you can arrange it, and Never put off telling a loved one, how much you care for them. Life is far too fragile!!!!!!

I just lost my father on Thursday and your message sounded like something he would say. Dad loved to travel but a stroke 13 yrs ago ended that for him. He traveled through me these last years and always enjoyed hearing all about our cruises and the sites we saw. He always told me to go while I could you never know when you'll be forced to stop. I miss him dearly but know he will always be traveling with me.

Very true!

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
