It was a pleasure meeting you today. I truly enjoyed our time together and wish I could have stayed longer. Please pardon my forwardness, but I want to brag a bit about you.
When I walked into your home I was struck at how tall you stand – do you know you move without hesitation, as one who knows exactly what he wants out of this life? Not many of us can claim to face the challenges of the day with such a spark in our eyes.
You have a robust and joyful spirit that sweeps over your listeners and draws them to you – in the world of business they call this magnetism. It will serve you well in your endeavors.
I was wrong when I stated that you have done more with your life than I did when I was your age. You have accomplished more in your young life than I have done in over twice that time, because you understand and appreciate what most of us are too shallow or stingy to accept – that life is precious. It is like an elegant vase – fragile, yet lovely, and incomplete unless filled with a harvest of colors and scents from a world found beyond the doors that enclose us. With your courage and hope, you have shown us how to find that world.
It was a delight meeting you, and I look forward to our next visit. Until then, I shall pray for you, for your family, and especially for your oncologists, that they may lead you safely back to good health.
