I am writing this missive Sunday night shortly after hearing of the death of a college buddy from a heart attack. For those of you who are familiar with my work, I tend to write this weekly blurb often at the spur of the moment and about something that has caught my attention. Today, I am using it to write about a friend and to remind us all of something very important…
I last saw Chris 4 years ago when he was being honored by his high school by being inducted in their Hall of Fame. Fate had me now living near where he attended high school and won a state championship. We talked and laughed and shared memories together. I remember clearly making sure we had each others cell phone and address information correct, as we were going to make sure we saw each other more frequently. As I look at his contact info on my phone now, I sadly admit we never did. Life gets “in the way…”
Here’s the deal and our reminder for the week. We only come around this way once. We are here for a short time and have no idea when or how it comes to an end. While I’m sad that we didn’t spend more time together, I’m thrilled to have played a very small part in Chris’s life. Take a look at your day today, this week, and into the future. Live without burden, live without fear, and live loving those around you. You only come around this way once…make sure you leave a mark.
