Playing the Hand …

Seldom a week goes by that I am not reminded of the inspirational life and words of the amazing Dr. Randy Pausch,  author of The Last Lecture.  What a blessing that Dr. Pausch’s classroom lecture to his students and colleagues at Carnegie Mellon was picked up by the media, and circulated across the country and the world.  Those of us who heard the story, followed Dr. Pausch’s life before his untimely death last year, and read the book by Wall Street Journal columnist, Jeffrey Zaslow, are better people for it!  Certainly my thoughts and prayers have remained with Mrs. Pausch and her children and family.  Hopefully they are doing well.

As a quick follow-up, Author Zaslow has a new book that I am looking forward to reading.  It’s called The Girls from Ames, the story of women and a forty-year friendship.  The Girls book was released earlier this year.  Perhaps you’ll enjoy reading it too.

In closing, here’s one of the many pearls of priceless wisdom from Professor Pausch: 

“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.”
