This afternoon I was in a car with a friend of the family. We were on our way from my step-grandmothers funeral to share lunch with family and friends.
My friend lost his wife to cancer a month ago. She was his best friend. They shared the best of times, the worst of times and all in between. They had lived with money and all the trappings of wealth. They had lived with nothing. They lived “for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health”.
My friend told me something he learned along the way. “You can have money, lose it all and make it back. Relationships are what’s important. Life is about relationships.”
Relationships make us rich. What are you treasuring?
In loving memory of Estelle and Nancy. May you continue to live on in the hearts of those you touched along the way.
