Announcements: THE BULL 30 OCT 2021


I shared in the COT that my brother and his family were recently in a bad car accident that they really shouldn’t have walked away from – but they did. It was a traumatic and emotional experience for everyone and we feel incredible blessed that they only have minor injuries. The reason I’m bringing this up is to reiterate the message that life can change in an instant and we should all try to live one day at a time. It is so easy to get lost in the day-to-day sometimes and forget just how fragile life is. So my humble ask is that you take a quick inventory of your life, and see if there is somewhere you’d like to improve. Maybe it’s saying ‘I love you’ more to the people you care about – they need it. Maybe it’s realizing the job you want isn’t the job you have – make a change. Maybe you’d like to give more in some way to others – take the step. Whatever it is, go do it and bring others with you.
