For Mike

Several years ago I was fortunate enough to meet a gentleman from Minnesota named Mike who loves music, his friends and most of all, his family.

Three months ago his beloved father was diagnosed with cancer and given little hope for survival. But with many prayers, good thoughts and hope he is doing well and was able to share this past Father's Day with his sons.

When I heard this song I thought of Mike and how he and his father are living each day as it comes, rejoicing in the moments that they share and taking nothing for granted. We could all learn a lesson from them and from this beautiful melody by Josh Groban that tells us to be awake through all the blessings we are given and live each day with joy.
