In the blink of an eye

Dear Editor:’Why’ is a question we often ask ourselves. Often we go through tragedies in our lives. We lose our parents, our sons, our daughters, our wives. You realize she will never be there to say, “rise and shine sunshine,” because she is gone. Why? Why me? Because life changes in a blink of an eye.One day you wake up. You realize that yes, the bad boy has grown up. Suddenly you are on the other side. Your life changes. Your job becomes the best job you ever had. The sun is brighter than its ever been. Your friends and brothers are more than you ever hoped for. Your sons and family are there for you, even your dog. The sun will come up tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar. Why, because life changes in a blink of an eye.So here is some advice that’s been heard before: Love your wife, your sons, your daughters, your family and your friends, “Like Today Is The Last Day You Will Ever See Them.” I do rise and shine every day now. Because life changes in a blink of an eye.I’m back.Russ DeckerCarbondale
