I'd like to thank one of my Old School Mix visitors and Goodreads Friends, Damika, for introducing me to the following quote by Quincy Jones:
*not being able to see my still healthy, alert and funny grandfather live well into his '90s;
*being married to my college sweetheart for more years that I care to announce on this blog (smile)
*bringing another life into the world and watching him grow into the smart, handsome and vibrant young man that he is today;
*publishing my first newspaper article, my first magazine article, my first short story and my first novel;
*helping one of my oldest and dearest friends through the end of her 17 year marriage;
*accompanying my husband through the removal of a cyst from his brain;
*witnessing the joy and delight my parents take in being grandparents.What about you? What sort of life enriching experiences might you have missed had you departed this world at 25? What gifts or talents might you have missed out on sharing with the rest of the world?
