Most importantly, I have a beautiful wife and best friend, Sandra, whom I have loved and cherished from
the first day we met. Together, we have two wonderful children who are the shinning stars of our lives. Apart from their
health and happiness, my wish is that they will all someday join me as partners in my firm.
Another great speech:
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have
bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge,
but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke
too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read
too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too
much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years
to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new
neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.
cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information,
to produce more c opies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow
digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more
divorce, fancier houses, b ut broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night
stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in
the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you
can choose either to [absorb] this insight, or to just [ignore it].
Remember, spend some time with your loved ones,
because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe,
because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to
you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember to say
"I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt
when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will
not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your
...and always remember...
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments
that take our breath away.
Dr. Bob Moorhead, former pastor of Overlake Christian Church
