As I ventured into the work world my primary focus was to earn an income. I wanted to go to college and needed to find a way to pay for it. I looked for something that I could do, hopefully enjoy doing it.
I know planning for your death is morbid and can be painful. Some don’t want to face the facts of life. My hope is that I go quickly. However, once I am gone, I want to make sure my family is protected.
As we zoom through life we live for today, without much thought for tomorrow. We take care of what is in front of us. Yes, we know that tomorrow is not guaranteed. Yes, accidents and heart attacks happen, but to others not us.
During the past year, my son became a father. I am not sure if he is happier that he has a child or has a new playmate. He approaches fatherhood with a huge dose of fun. They roar like lions and do the chicken dance together. I am very proud of him.
