This post is for a person I am proud to call my friend.
You can lose your job. Keys are never where you last put them. The Battle of the Bulge is now known as being the Biggest Loser. Socks disappear into dryers, never to be seen again. We lose touch with persons we once thought we could never live without, with our spouses, children, and friends. Rocky lost to Apollo Creed. We even lose hair, eyesight, and hearing with age.
We lose. Every single day, we... lose.
Yes, we all lose a little everyday. But in reality we also gain, if only our hearts let us and our minds open up to the possibility.
Loss doesn't define us. Who we are, who we become in spite of it does.
