A Lesson To Remember

I first learned this lesson way back in 1984 when I took a class for funeral directors called “Life Appreciation Training”   I could write for hours about the impact that the late Bill Bates, founder of the training, had on my life.

I will be forever grateful for the lessons I learned from Bill.

I went back to the old blog and found a story that I wrote back in 2014 and now that both of my parents have died, I thought it was appropriate to share it with you all as it drives home the point. Some of the links within the links are no longer active, but I will mention the reference to my grabbing dad’s finger..I was in an orphanage at 6 months old  and my parents ended up adopting me as they told me I grabbed his finger and would not let go and that sealed the deal. The rest is, as they say, history.

The story is called,  A Lesson and a Letter.

It resembles the second stanza of the popular Prayer of St. Francis.

Ignoring the lesson is done at your own peril.
