How to deal with death ?

Death is inevitable and so is the fear of it.You can choose two ways of coping with it. The first way is to think about death in a negative way . Then be alarmed on what to do and how to live without the loved-one that passed away. This way causes depression and self pity. This is not a good way to cope with death because it makes you hopeless while you're still alive. The second way (which is the right way) would be to understand that death is one of the most important parts of life. People die because this is the nature's way of clearing the old and making way for the new. In other words, don't be sad forever because someone died . Life is a great gift and we should all be thankful for the years that God allowed us to live in this world.

Waiting for the amplifier and the scholarship benefit

It’s been two months already and our son’s government scholarship grant is nowhere to be found. The cashier’s office told my wife when she went to their office that they don’t have yet the budget and they are still waiting for the scholarship grant to be released. Wow! Two months and counting and our son is becoming impatient already. He plans to buy a brand new electric guitar. His aunt in the U. S. suggested that she would buy marshall amplifiers at musicians friend as her Christmas gift for him. I hope and pray that his scholarship benefit will be released soon so we could his guitar. The amplifier would be useless without the guitar. What would arrive first ? The package from the US or the scholarship check ?
