Life and the opportunity to Live

Did I leave the house in good standing with my Spouse?
Did I call my mom or dad today and say I love you and appreciate you?
Does my extended family know I wish the best for them and love them?
Have I been a good friend to those that are in need?
Have I served those in need?
Have I been a friend to all?
Did I smile enough at others passing my way?
Have I focused enough on the good things and not worried about the hard times?
Have I stood up for the underdog and boosted individuals self esteem?
Have I given all that I can to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints?
Have I apologized to those that I have offended or hurt?
Have I given all that I can to make the world a better place?

All of these questions ran through my head today after having a threat come into our office today at work. Sitting at work not knowing whether the individual threatening us would come in like he said he would or if he was just trying to get a rise out of us. Either way I sat and thought have I lived a life of service and love? I am definitely thinking about my life differently now and what I can do to better it.

Wow, that's scary! I wish your job didn't involve dealing with people like that. I love you, and I think that while we can all continue improving, you can answer a general yes to those questions. We love you so much, Erin & you are an influential individual in your family and community. We never want to see you go...not even to another state. Love you!
