I heard about Bob's passing yesterday morning, and like so many of you I was floored. After I logged off the computer, I went about my life but I kept thinking about Bob, and everyone in his 'real' life who is going to miss him so much, and how kind he always was, and how everyone in his 'cyber' life (me included) was going to miss him so much. Recently, since March, I have been going through a lot of personal stuff... I can relate to Pete's struggles with depression because I struggle too. Over the past two months I have been unhappy, harping on what I don't have in life, harping on stupid meaninless stuff. Now, with Bob passing, I feel like everything is so clear to me. I have been so focused on petty stuff in my life, I have missed all the things I should be greatful for. A healthy daughter, a good job, a good husband, a close extended family. I took for granted that those things would always be there, just like I took Bob for granted. I'll never do that again... bob's passing has made me realize that in an instant you can lose something you love. It has made me realize that I should never take anything for granted, and live every moment to it's fullest. In one of his posts, Kevin said that we should all take this occasion to tell our loved ones that we love them- because we never know, it might be the last time. God, such truth in that statement. I know that every day I'll be doing that from now on. Reading Pete's eulogy, I saw so many examples of how I should try to be like Bob. Imagine if we all acted with such kindness. We could change the world! I'm going to try to be like Bob as often as I can. We all should. I really feel like this is a life-changing moment for me. Does anyone else feel the same way? Has Bob's passing opened your eyes to things you've been taking for granted in your life? Will you join me in trying to be like bob?
