Cherish the moments!

Yesterday, I attended a memorial service for classmate/teammate Larry O’Donnell. He was all of 17 days older than me and left this life far too early. His daughter spoke of him taking time to sit and talk with her through the night shortly before his passing. How many times are we too focused on goals and objectives that we lose sight of what is important? We each are given so many breaths and while providing for your family is important, don’t lose sight of the family that is there supporting you. Take time to love on them and listen to them. Make the most of the moments you are given. As I heard a preacher say once, “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.” In other words, don’t let the affairs and challenges of life overtake time with family and friends. Life is meant to be enjoyed. Nobody ever wishes they had one more day to work at the end of their days. We all have to work, but we can’t let it blot out the loved ones along for the ride.
