Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but I heard some sad news today that makes me want to reevaluate what is important in life. A coworker of mine took his own life yesterday. Why, I don't know. He was in physical pain, I was told. But that doesn't explain everything. It's not like he and I were close friends or anything. Just a friendly acquaintance, that you'd run into in the hallway and have a short pleasant conversation with. I knew he had a wife and two girls. But I wasn't close enough to him to know his day to day life. He gave me advice about what school my girl should attend, because his daughter and mine are in the gifted school based programs; basically taking advanced classes in school. He helped me decide cause he went through it himself. So why he passed is not understood at this time. I believe it was suicide though. My point here is that I need to try and take more time and be even more a part of my daughter's lives. I feel like I already am an active participating husband and father, but it's things like this that make you appreciate the friends and family that you have even more.
