The True Worth of a Man...
But what I’ve been thinking about is the true value of a person…
This came to me after I wrote my father’s obituary. What was my father’s worth, and how does one judge one’s value?
In this so-called modern society, it seems everyone is judged by two things: fame and wealth.
I’ve come to the realization that money is worthless.
Now before you go call the rubber room and have me hauled away, hear me out.
I’m not one of those people who think money is the root of all evil, but nor do I think it is the center of the universe.
I admit it, I like money. It’s great for paying the bills, it makes the financial world go round, and in this society that we live in, it helps you live life the way you want to.
But I’ve come to realize that it doesn’t matter how much your coffers are over flowing with gold, it is worthless…because in the end, when you die, you cannot take it with you. Nor will you be remembered for said wealth. Sure you might get a brief mention on the news, but very quickly your memory will fade away.
Fame isn’t much better in my opinion. In fact, from what I’ve seen, it’s more of a detriment then a blessing. And yet everyone wants to be famous. But what will fame get you? An extra 20 minutes in the news before you’re replaced by the next news story?
No, it is not fame or wealth that defines a man…it is his deeds.
What you do with your life and how you live it, is how people will remember you.
Me and my mother have been getting a lot of condolences from friends and acquaintances…and on two separate occasions people actually said the following to my Mom when they found out about my father’s death.
“The universe was a better place when Max was in it…”
I admit, I feel the same way--he was my Dad--but to have others say such a thing says a lot about who my father was as a man and the weight of his deeds.
I think that if you can make the world around you (no matter how big or small you define that world) a better place while you’re in it, then you will always be remembered by those who know and love you.
Let deeds define you, not wealth or fame.

GO TEAM CANADA!
I've been dying to buy a souvenir from the Olympic Games, because they have been absolutely amazing! Watched the Opening Ceremonies with my Mom in surround sound (it was almost like being there...a BIG almost...LOL), and the Canadian Athletes have also been amazing...
The whole world seems to be celebrating this beautiful and inspiring country right along with us.
And since it's the Canada vs USA Hockey Game tonight, I'd thought I would actually splurge (hard for me to do) and buy this replica jersey to watch the game in...and what happens? Canada loses 3 to 5... *shakes head*
Oh the humanity! (LOL) But do not despair! Canada has a resilient spirit--never say die--and I know our Men's hockey team will KICK BUTT and will end up playing for Gold... *crosses fingers*
Regardless of what happens...I have to say the level of pride I feel, not only in our athletes, but in Canada as a nation, has never been stronger. This is a beautiful country and I'm so proud to be living in it! Though my Dad wasn't born here, I know he loved it too...
So GO TEAM CANADA...GO!
