COT

TAP’s to our BOTG on IR> Trojan and Spicoli. TAP’s to Left Turns sister having a baby today/tomorrow. TAP’s to my friend Patti just diagnosed with breast cancer. TAP’s to Toy Story, praying for good news on the retest. TAP’s to those families dealing with death from car accidents in our area over the past week.

We discussed Memento Mori> Everyone around us is going to die. Such reminders and exercises take part of Memento Mori—the ancient practice of reflection on mortality that goes back to Socrates. Be prepared in life, hold your kids close, hug your wife, tell those around you that you love them daily. Reach out to someone you haven’t talked to in a long time just to tell them you were thinking of them (especially parents).
