“There is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning, and under every deep a lower deep opens.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is a tough one for me to write. It is my first JAM I’ve written since my Dad’s passing last week. He was a great collector of quotes (now you know where I get it from!) and I went to his list and chose today’s message. I could write for days as to what this man has meant to me and my development as a person and a leader. I will instead keep this short and just tell you that I truly loved my dad and will miss him terribly. However, as Emerson brilliantly stated, every end is a beginning – even a life. I will move through my grief and continue my quest to be a positive force, seeking to be contagious in offering hope, encouragement, and love to a world that needs it. My dad would expect that from me. And I will not let him down.
Thank you to all who have offered their condolences and kind thoughts to me and my family. It is truly appreciated.
So well said and I’m sure your father is very proud. My niece lost her father last week and I will share this with her.
Hi Debbie. I hope this can be of some help and comfort to your niece. All the best, Mike
