LT049 – On Death and Being A Big Person

Last Sunday night, I got a text message from my mother telling me that my grandmother was taken to the hospital and that she would likely pass away shortly.

My wife and I hopped in the car and drove over to the hospital.

We got there about five minutes before she passed away.

Standing next to the hospital bed, looking at my grandmother, I didn’t particularly feel sad the way that most people might, but I actually felt relieved.

I thought about her life and everything that she must have experienced and gone through in her lifetime, and I realized that what we commonly think of as the “big moments” in life aren’t really what make us.

It’s actually the small, ordinary moments that define our lives.

I’ll explain it all in the podcast episode.
