"The Dash"

Today I went to a Celebration of Life for one of my dear friend’s dad who passed away at the end of January. I have been to a few too many of these Celebrations over the past couple of years. Some have been for relatives, some for parents of friends, and tragically one for a child of a friend.

I guess this is something that happens as we get older. Perhaps I should consider this more of a positive than negative thing. It means I have had the good fortune of living a fun, happy and fairly healthy life so far.

At today’s Celebration a poem "The Dash" written by Linda Ellis was read. As I sat there listening, the words really struck a chord with me. I hope that you will take the 2-3 minutes to link over and read this poem.

Just so you know…I am not done yet and plan on making the most of "MY Dash".  How about you?



That's G...BEHIND me!  Baaahaaahaaa!
