“Tell me, what is it you plan to do / with your one wild and precious life?(Mary Oliver)” – Life is a gift. We didn’t ask for it. We received it. Each moment we have is a gift and a precious treasure. When we receive a precious gift, what do we do with it? I imagine the gift is cared for with deep love. It is kept in a protected place where others can see it. Are we not more valuable than any precious material gift we might receive? Why not treat this gift of life we have with deep reverence, gratitude, love, and use it to produce something beautiful.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
