Oh, and I have some really big news....but I can't share it yet. Maybe next week.
This last week two significant people in my life passed away. One was the man who performed the sealing and wedding for JoLynne and me, David Yarn. I think he performed the weddings and sealings for 9 out of 13 siblings in my family. He lived to a ripe old age and had a life full of service. The second one was a young pediatrician here in town. He had some minor health problems which somehow got out of control. He ended up having a stroke and dying at age 38. He had barely begun his medical practice and left behind a wife and four young children. That is only a little older than my father was at the time of his death. I guess the reason I mention it is because it re-emphasizes to me the fragile nature of life. Every day I wake up so grateful to be alive still. Life is a beautiful, delicate gift. It is so easy to take for granted but really, who knows how long any of us have upon this earth. We may have a long life or we may be called home early. We just don't know. I try to live each day to it's fullest. I hope I can help someone in need or do something of value each day that I am alive. I hope I never go to bed without telling my wife and children how much I love them. Tomorrow never comes, we only have today.
PS: Yesterday I winked for the first time in four months with my right eye. JoLynne will have no relief from the flirting now!
