Yesterday, I learned that a mom of one of my daughter’s friends passed away. Her name was Nancy. She was 47, had 4 daughters and worked at a restaurant. That’s all I knew about her. Yes, we had spent several hours in the dressing room before dance recital doing quick changes, fixing hair/make-up and engaging in “motherly” chatter. One of her older daughters had gotten married just before one of mine, so we compared wedding notes, etc. You know, usual girl stuff. But had we discussed things that really mattered? I don’t think so. We were very pleasant with each other but not really what I would call friends. Now she’s gone. So many unfinished conversations…..
“What do I do with unfinished conversations?.”
I recently recorded a video for Leadership Network’s Leading Through Change event on that very subject. I thought I’d share it today because I need to be reminded, too.
