I’ve been thinking about circles lately.
You know I love sunsets, but did you know this? The sun’s diameter is 1.4 million kilometers.
That’s a big circle, or I guess sphere would be the more appropriate word.
I’ve thought so many times of Chris’ beautiful eyes and how they are living on and helping to give a young transplant patient improved sight. I love those small circles of light.
I looked down last week at the desk on which I write this tonight. There are salty circles that have stained the table, the sometimes unavoidable outcome of overflowing eyes.
I also think of the circle of life and sometimes how big and sometimes how small it can be.
Our hearts break for the family of 12-year-old budding hockey player Coleton Nelson who was killed in a car accident this weekend here in Valley.
That circle of life was way too short.
So was Chris’. A short circle of life, but oh so big.
Do me a favour and give your kids a great big hug tonight!
If you’re a kid reading this, it’s ok to tell your folks you sorta luv them too!!
Be The Best.

Love it! I think it was in Wall Street 2 that Michael Douglas’ character suggests the only real commodity we have is time. I’m with ya…every moment is like gold..(times infinity!). All the best.
