Don’t miss the point

This week, along with many of you, I heard David Wells speak. He made me laugh and he made me cry. His physical comedy, timing and poignancy struck a chord.

“Don’t miss the point.”

What is it in your life that you don’t want to miss?

Your children or grandchildren as they discover and explore their world? An unfulfilled dream? The stories told and retold by your parents or grandparents? The honesty of our students? Relationships with siblings, fondly considered friends? The creative energy of colleagues? The friendships of those who inspire, encourage or make you laugh? The thrilling possibilities of a new work day? The quiet moments with the one you love most?

Whatever it is, don’t miss the point.

Live today.

  1. I loved his presentation . . . “Not Missing the Point” and “Making Memories” have become my purpose in life!

  2. I had to laugh at myself the other day after I brought my 22 grade 2 students to mass and all I kept trying to do was keep them from talking, moving, and touching all of the pamphlets and books in front of them. I felt just like the scene David Wells was talking about with his own kids at mass. That’s exactly how we “miss the point”…
