You probably noticed that there was no technical posting today. Well the simple reason is that early Thursday morning I got a call from home that a close family member had passed unexpectedly.
So today I am back home in Ireland recovering from an unplanned and rather long flight back and the stress and grief that comes from losing someone. It's unfortunate but it is something we all have to deal with from time to time.
So forgive me if this sounds a bit sappy, but take a moment to think about the people you care about. Make time to call that person you have not spoken to in awhile. Forgive that silly argument and make up. You still have time, don't waste it.
Finally, let me leave you with a little link I found about being happy. Maybe it can help you put things in perspective and let go of some things that are keeping you from enjoying your life.
