Every single day brings the opportunity for the freshness of perspective

Stunned by the news. Al was only 53, with a wife and three child under 15.


Freshness of perspective?

What would it feel like to have three overwhelming events happen on the same day?:

  • neighbor says her 22-year old daughter thought Mid Life Celebration (your book) was ‘fantastic’!
  • email sharing that 53-year old father of your child’s classmates just passed away
  • a colleague bestows generosity and kindness beyond amazing

All unexpected.

All powerful.

All emotional.

All reminding us of life’s beauty and life’s harsh reality.

  1. Jeff,

    I am sorry for the loss of your friend. I read the obituary…very touching. Makes you appreciate your family all the more!

    At the same time, I am glad you received great affirmation about your book while also receiving great kindness from your colleague. Makes you also appreciate what God is doing in you and for you now!

    It is a lot to take in on a single day…the full range of emotions with highs and lows.


  2. Bob, everyday is an opportunity.

    Everyday is a gift.

    Up to us to make sure we remember this.

    Every dang day.

    No exceptions.
