Recently I was saddened to learn that a friend and co-workers father had passed away. The sudden death came as an expected tragedy for his family. All sudden deaths are hard for family members but this death was more traumatic because it occurred during a family vacation.
Not only grieving for their loss, but the family also had to deal with the complication of having his body returned to the US from a foreign country.
This kind man was enjoying his Punta Cana vacation sitting poolside with a cocktail and word puzzle book on a Caribbean island.
So I ask...
Dear Lord when you decide it is my time to go (and I hope it is not too soon, I still have a lot to see and do on my "bucket list") even though it may be hard on my family when it is my time can I too be sitting on a tropical island drinking a cocktail poolside and working a word puzzle or reading a juicy book/ebook?
I can’t think of a better way to go…traveling and enjoying life to its fullest!
