This post today is dedicated to Linda, a lady in the neighborhood who was killed Monday in a car accident. You might think, "Oh that is so sad that Cliff lost a good friend.", but I did not know Linda very well. I didn’t know her likes or dislikes, the number of children she had or where she grew up. What I did know about her was that she was a very soft spoken lady who was always very kind and congenial when you saw her. She seemed to radiate kindness or give off a vibe of kindness.
I think the other thing that has gotten to me is how sudden her death was. It is making me take stock of what is around me and what is important. No one on their deathbed is going to say, “I wish I had a few more hours to spend at work”!!
As I saw on someone’s blog recently, “Live for the moment, plan for eternity”. To me these are words to live by.
