Appreciation

Every once and a while something happens that makes you realize how lucky you are.  And it wasn’t landing on my head during a backflip attempt yesterday at Sierra and skiing away unscathed.  Yesterday I was reminded that life is short and uncertain when I found out that a young father and husband lost his 14 year battle with cancer.

I’m sure everyone will keep his wife and young son in their thoughts and prayers.  It was a reminder to me to be grateful for the time I have and to make the most of it.  Passing kindness and a general lust for life on to others is the best way I can think to honor this person and his family.

I think this quote from “Romeo and Juliet” applies to this heroic man.

“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
— William Shakespeare
