I want to thank all of you who took the time to reach out in response to yesterday’s story about my Dad. I received emails, calls and texts. Dad’s energy literally spread yesterday from coast to coast; serving as a reminder to us all that life is lived in moments and it truly is about the energy we emit, the energy we leave and the circle of energy in which we choose to run.
A friend reached out to tell me of her Mom’s passing last December. She lives in Florida, her sister lives in Italy and Mom was in New Jersey. They simultaneously arrived in the hospital parking lot. Mom passed within an hour after they had arrived, settled in and told her it was OK and it was time for her to go and “be with Dad”. The power in those words.
Another called on his way home from a day of little league baseball All Stars. A day spent with his Dad and his son. “I was reading it and thought “how blessed are we?” A good man who knows it’s all in the moments. His all star team lived to fight another day!
Then there came an email from a long lost cousin and next week we will have lunch in Boston. We have not seen each other in almost 50 years. Dad still at work.
As for yesterday’s 18th hole at the Lake Venice Golf Club…..
I hit three balls from the tee 167 yards away. The six iron was my club of choice for this par 3 closing hole….I registered a 3 and a pair of 4’s……Not bad.
The toast….”To the Greatest Man I’ve ever known.”
The Moment…..Happy birthday Mook……
And so it is on this day…..TODAY…June 28, 2015…Capture a moment.
