A friend and neighbor lost his son this past weekend, very suddenly. His son was about 19 or 20 years old. I can not imagine the emptiness and hurt that this would bring on; even after watching my younger sister and her family deal with it, I still cannot imagine what it feels like.
So I am grateful that my family is healthy and that we are all moving forward with our lives. I am getting extremely busy working for myself, with a few friends and with new people and companies that cross my path. I am really enjoying it and I continue to learn a lot. It has also allowed my wife and I to do some traveling these past twelve months and I anticipate that we will be doing some more.
I am grateful for health and opportunities and especially for my family.
