I think this is needed now. I found this quote in a book I read. It made me think of my friend Lisa who is going through some difficult times with work right now--well I shouldn't say difficult times--but a possible difficult decision. Then yesterday I get a call from one of my good friends and found out her mom was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. I love you Dawn and Aamer. Please hang in there...

"Imagine life is a game in which you are juggling five balls. The balls are called work, family, health, friends and integrity. And you're keeping all of them in the air. But one day you finally come to understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls-family, health, friends integrity--are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered. And once you truly understand the lesson of the five balls you will have the beginnings of balance in your life."
