Why is it that we have to be reminded that life is short?
Why is it that we have to be reminded that life is fragile?
Why is it that we have to be reminded to live our lives every day like today might be our last?
We have a family member who has terminal cancer. It reminds us that although we may be healthy today, that our health could change for any of us tomorrow. Not just because of cancer, it can be any number of things.
We live our lives and somehow we forget that tomorrow is not guaranteed. We make plans for next month, next year or “in the future”.
Today we threw our diets out the window. We weren’t counting calories, or pounds, or cholesterol or blood pressure.
Today we ate Hot Dogs for dinner, and a big cereal bowl filled with home made shortcake biscuits, strawberries, and freshly whipped cream piled inside and on top of the shortcake.
It was over the top,
it was fabulous,
it was necessary!
We all agree that technology is awesome when it works like we expect it to.
It’s simple, right?
We have a Xerox photocopier/scanner at work.
Step1: scan an important document.
Step2: Technology kicks in and it sends a PDF file to our desktop computer which I then attach to an email and on its way it goes. (This is critical)
Step3: take important document and shred it, don’t be needing it anymore.
Step4: forget to email it to the intended recipient.
Step5: remember the following day that it is sitting in the scan file somewhere.
Step6: No problem! Open the scan file and send it one day late.
Step7: SHIT – the scan program isn’t communicating with the Scanner and I can’t access my documents.
Step8: Get the scanner program talking to the Xerox again, which is now talking to my desktop scan file.
Step9: Do a test scan.
Step11: FIND IMPORTANT DOCUMENT again, email it for sure this time, now QUIT SCREWING AROUND WITH PINK-POST-IT-NOTES and get back to work.
