Leaving a Legacy

The last few days I have been wondering what to write, I just have been so saddened over the loss of a friend. A man who not only lived his life as a man of integrity, but also one who gave back to everyone around him, he was a father, a son, a friend, a pastor, a clinician, and all around wonderful human being. Life does bring all sorts of unfair and unexpected loss, no one ever wants to see someone die or have their life cut short long before they had a chance to even see their children grow old or all of their dreams come to a reality. The world has lost an amazing individual this week and everyone that knew him, was better because of it. It is very sad and hard to put answers to so many questions.

Would you want the world to be a better place because you have lived in it? What would you want those who have loved and cared for you to be able to say about you, the way you lived your life?What you did to make a difference while you lived your life will give you an astounding way of thinking about what is important and what means the most in your quest for success.  These are all questions I have thought about myself the last few days as my heart has been looking for answers and trying to make sense of such a terrible thing. I can take heart in the fact that he is truly in a better place and all of heaven is rejoicing that he has come home. It is us here who have been left to go on with our lives that are so terribly sad.

Leaving a legacy and cherishing the people around you is the single most important thing in living your life to the fullest. Life is short, it is a gift given to you for awhile to make a difference with all the abilities you were given. I challenge you today to live your life so that you do make a change in the people around you! Love people, live your life with integrity, love every moment even the hard times, and thank God every day that you have been given a new day with breath in your lungs and a new beginning.

In memory of Jeff Rosinski. You will be missed and you have made a difference in the lives of many!
