Bonus

This has nothing to do with what most employees expect this time of year. Don't you notice that more people have been getting sick or dying lately? If you had a choice, up to how old would you want to live?

I have often heard people (most of them priests during a funeral mass) say that to live up to 70 is already a blessing. After awhile, I realized that this statement had some Biblical basis. I don't remember where now (was it in the Psalms?) but there's a part there which goes: "Seventy years is all we have. Eighty, if we are strong." No wonder most people consider living beyond 80 as a big bonus already.

Anyway, here's wishing all of you the Christmas bonus you all expect. I wish you more years too. Better yet, at the end of this life, may we all get the biggest bonus of all -- finding a special room for us in Our Father's house.
