Tracy,

I am so sorry for the loss of your father. I’m sure he would take great pride in having shared one more life lesson though, and for the powerful way you have shared this life lesson with so many others. Myself included.

You are absolutely right. Time is precious and it is a greater joy to take the time and effort to fill the buckets of others.

I am often reminded of this as I have been in self lock down and isolation with my parents throughout the pandemic. Every day is a mixture of frustrations and greater joys. Of life lessons I didn’t think I’d have to learn so early in. But more than anything, I am learning a deep and genuine gratitude for every moment I have with them.

Thank you again for sharing this!
