Good Friday morning Dan Wells writing! The average person strives for a lot in their life...Right?
Landing a great job, meeting Mr. or Mrs. Right, living in a great city, buying the house of their dreams, driving an amazing car.
People work hard to achieve these goals. Some are lucky enough to even have all of them. But when you really sit down and think about it, is all this 'stuff' really what matters the most?
Unless you have been under a rock for the past few months, you too are aware of what has been happening around the world lately. Earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, etc. Destruction has uprooted people from their everyday lives in the matter of seconds.
With all of that said, life is clearly unpredictable, in every aspect, but through the good and the bad chances are, you'll always remember who you were with, who supported you and who was there to break a fall.
We have recently found out that we are going to have to say goodbye to close friends who are moving out of town. They were a big part of the reason we moved here. They were our family on Christmas mornings. We celebrated babies being born, 1st birthdays, and promotions. And as we wish them all the happiness and luck in the world, and are certain we will see them many, many more times to celebrate more milestones, it makes us realize how important friends(aka: family) are.
Everyday life gets so busy and we try and fill it up with so many things to do that we often take for granted the most important 'things' we have in our lives.
You may have that big corner office. You may have the biggest house on the block. You may drive the fastest car on the road. You may be dressed from head to toe in the latest trends. But when you take a minute to think about how easily that 'stuff' can be taken away from you...what do you have?
Hopefully it's friends like these. D & C, you will be missed.
