Don't blink...what a song. But what a message. Not only does life happen fast, but it can change in a hurry also. Life is great no matter how we look at it. Sure, there are problems here, problems there, but all in all haven't we got it good? Lately I have been thinking a lot about life and how fast it can change. I had a companion in LA, we had a hell of a time. Haven't talked to him in years, and I ran across a story on KSL.com about his family and the trial they are going through. I have been lost in a fog of holy crap life can change so fast don't take it for granted. A link to their blog about their boy Charlie is listed under my favorite links, read it, I guarantee you won't finish with a dry eye. And then, you too will have that feeling of, holy crap life can change in an instant, I better start appreciating what I got. It is hard, life is hard, but is it really? Even since I have had this hit of reality, I still find myself getting upset at my kids over the dumbest things, or not taking time to read that last book, or not taking that 5 minutes to take my wife in my arms and hold her, no need to talk, she will know that I am telling her that I love her and appreciate her. But still, I let those moments pass by each and everyday. Why? Because I am human, and haven't perfected the skill of forgetting myself and serving others at all times. Probably never will, but when you do little things for anyone, you can feel it, you know what I am talking about, it feels good to your soul. When trials come my way, will I face it with an rotten attitude or look at it as an opportunity to learn something? I hope it is the latter. I know Rob will probably never read this but, buddy, you and your family have been an inspiration to me, and I hope I can take that and become a better person, a more loving, kind, caring husband, father and friend. Change is inevitable, but if we are doing the best we can in this life, we will get through the changes, we will learn from them and add another notch in the lifes experiences pole and move on, hopefully better people than we were before hand. One way we can assure that we are doing all we can is by trying to incorporate the following saying into our lifes, this came from Sister Lexi Judd and I have used it many times since: work like it all depends on us and pray like it all depends on him. Now, go on and do it, keep you head up an remember take every breath god gives you for what its worth...and don't blink.
