Dear Son, life is hard, I can’t make this up

Not long ago, news came of a tragic event. Stunned.

Confused.

Disbelief.

And it was a few days later I read both Readings at Mass and hustled to Children’s Liturgy, the 20 (very small group this morning) precious K-5th graders refreshed my Family’s hope, which was severely strained a few days ago.

Steve Jobs Spoke About Death Being Perhaps The Single Best Invention Of Life

In his own words Steve Jobs expresses his philosophy of death elegantly:

In his own words Steve Jobs expresses his philosophy of death elegantly:

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

“Live, before you die”. – jeff noel

My deadline is June 8, 2019. Knowing full well it could be today or tomorrow.

My friend and fellow blogger, David Balentine, inspired this post when I commented on his blog a few minutes ago.

Carpe diem – not as a cliche, but as a battle cry.
