An update on an email from July 2. First, part of the post from back then:
I get a great deal of hate mail. But every so often I get an email that almost brings me to tears.
This is one of those emails, it is so good I want to share it with you.
Cam and Team,
A few weeks back you posted regarding your Daily Proverbs and your reasons for continuing to post them and the help it has provided you.
I’ve been reading the book that you suggested; The Richest Man Who Ever Lived, and have to say it has been uplifting.
Reading this has helped me to focus on the things that are important in my life and appreciate the time that I have. God didn’t give us an infinite number of breaths right?
I just wanted to pass on my heartfelt thanks for pointing me in this direction. I’m addicted to your blog, but that singular post has probably had the greatest impact upon my life.
Keep up the great work and stay strong to fight the good fight.
The post Tony is referring to is this one about why I post the Daily Proverb.
I wrote the post that day for no apparent reason other than I felt compelled to write about it. I don’t know what made me do it, but if it has helped just one person then that makes me incredibly happy.
I just received an update on Tony…
Message: Hi Cam
Thought that you should know that Tony who wrote to you a while back –
see your post [http://www.whaleoil.co.nz/2014/07/email-reader-6/ ] –
passed away this morning after a very short illness
He was a great guy – only in his mid 40s – married with two lovely girls.
So reminds me of Billy Joel’s “Only the good die young”
Tony was a huge fan of your blog – like I am.
All the best and keep up the fantastic work
