Property management provides a wide assortment of whacky, weird, funny, outrageous, sublime, and — this time — sobering stories.
This is the story of a 35-year-old tenant dying of lupus. Thirty five years old! She is on life support and when her father arrives in Seattle today they will pull the plug. She leaves behind an 8-year-old boy. Tragic.
So what is lupus. I had to look it up. It is a disease of the autoimmune system and can affect one or more organs at random. It is difficult to detect. This woman had been battling it since she was 13. Sometime later today she will lose that battle.
Let us use this proud mama’s battle as a firm reminder of our priorities in life. All my life I have valued time over money. You can always make more money. But you cannot make more time. So spend it wisely…with the ones you love and the ones who matter the most.
