Family Week Part 5 . . . Living Leaving & Loving

Tuesday I quoted Winnie the Pooh concerning exercise.  It is not my favorite Pooh Bear quote, however.

One of my favorite quotes comes from Winnie the Pooh. Years ago, one of my girls gave it to me in a note. The girl is not so little anymore, but the quote still resonates.

In Pooh’s own words, “If you live to be a hundred, I hope I live to be a hundred minus 1 day, so I never have to live a day without you.”

Do you have someone you feel that way about?  I hope so.

The truth is, the most important relationships you have are the ones you have at home.

Pooh also once said, “Promise me you’ll never forget me because if I thought you would I’d never leave.”

The words of Winnie might appear soft at first glance, but at the end of your days, they will determine the quality of your life.

Focus on your family.  You will never reach your full leadership potential in public if you are unable to love in private.

i2i,

Randy

Last night Jane said in a prayer that she wanted to die at the same time as Nancy and I so that she wouldn’t have to live without us. Bless her little heart. She wants to remain the sweet 6 year old forever. Truth be told I wish she could. Already I miss her being my little girl and she hasn’t grown yet… I pray that Jane, and the others, have a long fruitful life with Christ in the center of who they are…
Thanks Randy

Randy I think the biggest take away for me is the ever reminder that we have to be intentional especially when it comes to family. Invest some time and thought and love.
Pressing on with excellence!!
