Angie's Uncle Tom passed away this past Saturday. Tom was her Dad's brother. He was 70. There was a world of difference between the funerals for Maureen on Saturday and Uncle Tom on Wednesday. Maureen's was packed with people, had a dozen priests, and the Bishop there. It was very emotional. Tom's was 15 minutes long with just close family there. Both of them made me think a lot about the people in my life. We tend to worry a lot about stupid meaningless stuff. It's easier to think about and to try to control. How we treat and affect and love others is what really only matters. Global warming doesn't matter, or taxes, or dirty dishes, or dandelions. It's the people around us that give our lives purpose. I hope I can remember that for more than just a few weeks this time.
Our first softball game is tomorrow. Should be interesting. 7 & 8 year old girls just can not throw and catch well. There are a couple on the team that do pretty well some of the time. They all need a lot of work though. Don't we all.
