Goodbye, Uncle Jim

It's hard to believe I've let so long slide past without blogging. A lot has been happening in my life, but events this last week have shown me that's really not a good excuse to slip out of touch.

I got word yesterday that my uncle died. It was unexpected; he didn't seem unhealthy. It's gotten me thinking about missed opportunities to get to know him, to show an interest, and to share a bit more of my life with him. I'm newly interested in making sure I connect with others in a meaningful way.

Make sure that you do the same. Remember life is fragile. Remember people move into eternity unexpectedly. Even young people, even healthy people. Cherish your life and the lives around you.
