Thoughts and prayers go out to the Scoble family May 11, 2006Posted by Matsu in Family, Friends, Windows/Microsoft.
Today I was catching up on my blog reading and read what Robert Scoble posted in his blog the past couple of days (here and here). His mother is terminally ill and is not expected to live much longer so he and his brothers have all traveled to be by her side in a hospital located in Montana.
Reading what Scoble said about his experiences and his feelings at this time reminded me of what me and my family went through earlier this year when my Father-In-Law, Frank Roughton Harvey, passed away after losing his battle with Leukemia. A terminal illness of a close friend or family member has the effect of putting our work and daily problems in perspective. The love and support of friends and family members are so very important and comforting during these times.
Whether or not you believe in God, the way you treat those you live with (family), work with (co-workers), and play with (friends) is more important than the work you do. Keeping that in mind throughout each day makes the difference. Our relationships with each other are far more important than the work we do. And, remembering that we need those relationships during times of personal crisis may help us treat people better every day.
If your mother is still alive this Mother's Day, do something special to let her know how much you love and appreciate her. And, please say a prayer for Robert Scoble and his family as they say their final farewells to their mother.
