He’s OK with the process

This morning (Monday) at a health club in metro Atlanta, a portly gentleman and I struck up a conversation.   “Bert” told me that his goal is to lose more than one-hundred pounds.  The 75-year-old still is active as a salesman.   He sold his business  but still enjoys being in the game,  It was about  20 years ago that Bert moved from Philadelphia to the Atlanta area.  His children and grandchildren live nearby.   As we talked about his health issues ,  Bert volunteered, “I’m OK with the process.”     >>”You mean life and death?”     >>”Yes.”  >>”What choice do we have?”     We can accept the inevitable and try to leave the world a little better than we found it.
