I guess the reason for this short post is to remind you: your children are growing fast; the seasons outside your window are progressing without regard to what you're doing; sometimes we lose people who really matter to us. It's 2014, and we have more ways than ever to connect with people and tell them directly or indirectly how much they mean to us. Maybe the surfeit of communication methods makes us think we don't need to take that moment to connect because we can do so at any time, but life has a way of upending our plans and strategies.
Work hard, but don't forget why you're doing it. Sometimes life zooms by faster than you expect.
