His life ended too early

I told my husband the story of a partner in my ex-husband's law firm. This man, Mike Grzanka, was a hard worker, delayed-gratification type. He was in the building phase of his life, working, working all the time, so that he could enjoy life at a later time. In his mid forties, he found out that he had terminal liver cancer. He and his family went on a world travel tour for about a year. He was survived by his wife and 2 kids.

I wonder if this is the reason my husband announced that he is going to try to rearrange his schedule to free up some more time.

We all need to remember. Life is the journey, not the destination. Make sure you don't sacrifice too much of the Now. Now may be all we have.

Something in the air. Sad about Mike though. I know we have been reevaluating life lately and what is truly important vs. stuff in life that can wait!

Aw, that is sad. I'm glad they got to spend his last year together.
