The other day, Tiffany blogged about returning from the funeral of her husband’s grandfather (I can’t decide if “grandfather-in-law” makes any sense as a familial designation). As someone who wrote a blog entry titled “Putting the ‘Fun’ in Funeral,” I most likely have a different perspective. Instead of hijacking her blog (as I’ve done before) with a really long comment, I decided to link to it instead.

All of us have had things in our past that were difficult or painful. For me, there is no shortage of bad memories for me to play back in my mind, over and over.

I know my limits.

No, really. I do. I know that there are things I can do pretty well, such as public speaking, writing, and (in spite of appearances to the contrary) car repair.

drowning

In sharp contrast are things that I do not do well, but enjoy attempting to do (in the right context). This includes things like swimming, climbing, and playing golf. Recently, my family vacationed in Maui, where (coincidentally) some of the most common activities are…
