Can't Take It With You

It's a cliche that you won't be lying on your deathbed wishing you'd spent more time at the office, however for those of us (like my father and me) who are gluttons for responsibility, that is not entirely the case. Despite the fact he's officially on disability leave (with a retirement date of Dec. 31st) my dad can't resist calling in to the planetarium to make sure they're all doing okay, getting the newsletter out, scheduling school shows, etc.

For some, their career is just the place they pull a paycheck, and they wouldn't give it a second thought in a situation like this. Others, however, treat their careers as vocations -- carried until the last breath.

Blessed is the man who spends his life doing something he truly loves! And I greatly enjoyed the article about the asteroid being named after your father. God's abundant peace to you and your family.
