I’m now officially in my 60′s. Though I hope to have a couple of decades to go, life can turn on a dime as I know from experience. My task now is to comfort my wife and be there for her every moment as she fights, no, conquers cancer.
So as you can see there is so much to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day holiday. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to find something. I will leave you with this one wish: May we all continue to be thankful throughout the coming year and love one another.
You were the dutiful son, the one who wanted to please. Quietly you would work hard, and amaze me with what you could accomplish even at an early age. I was so proud when I took you to work at age 12 and my boss told me how you were outworking the adults. True, I found out much later that you weren’t the saint I thought you were but I was still proud.
I wish had had some special power over my son to get him to help himself. On some level I know I failed him.
Do I want my wife to have cancer? Hell no. Will I embrace it? In time.
How you talk to these important partners is vital to getting the most out of them. As one I know. I perform so much better when I understand the goals and directions of the company I’m working for.
We need that guy in his garage working late into the night to come up with the next new technology. The guy who will start a new industry, employ hundreds, and generate millions in revenue. We need an army of them and fewer large corporations.
