2020 Winterization Newsletter

The year 2020, has challenged us and it has changed us.

Some had good fortune and a lot had misfortune. Regardless of your situation, did anyone reflect upon themselves during these times and make changes for the better? I think I did a little of both, positive and negative. Atlantic Boats sends our condolences to anyone who lost a loved one during these times. I would like to dedicate this to my friend, Jacque Teehan.

The Dash

I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning… to the end.

He noted that first came the date of birth and spoke of the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time they spent alive on earth and now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own, the cars… the house… the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard; are there things you’d like to change? For you never know how much time is left that still can be rearranged.

To be less quick to anger and show appreciation more and love the people in our lives like we’ve never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile… remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.

So when your eulogy is being read, with your life’s actions to rehash, would you be proud of the things they say about how you lived your dash?
