    There once was a rich man who was near death. He was very grieved because he had worked so hard for his money and he wanted to be able to take it with him to heaven. So he began to pray that he might be able to take some of his wealth with him.

    An angel hears his plea and appears to him, "Sorry, but you can't take your wealth with you."

    The man implores the angel to speak to God to see if He might bend the rules.
    The man continues to pray that his wealth could follow him. The angel reappears and informs the man that God has decided to allow him to take one suitcase with him. Overjoyed, the man gathers his largest suitcase and fills it with pure gold bars and places it beside his bed.

    Soon afterward the man dies and shows up at the Gates of Heaven to greet St. Peter. Seeing the suitcase Peter says, "Hold on, you can't bring that in here!"

    But the man explains to him that he has permission and asks him to verify his story with the Lord. Sure enough, Peter checks and comes back saying, "You're right. You are allowed one carry-on bag, but I'm supposed to check its contents before letting it through."

    Peter opens the suitcase to inspect the worldly items that the man found too precious to leave behind and exclaims, "You brought pavement?!?!"

    Awesome Story Dude.

    It's Something I've Been Thinking About Ever Since I Read The 4 Ho*ur Work We*ek By Ti*m Fe*rris

    Most People Spent Most Of There Lives Doing Things (Ie Working At A JOB) They Dislike Doing Hoping To Live After They "Retire".

    But We Give Up The Best Years Of Our Life, When We Should Be Living Our Lives Now.

    It's Not How I Want To Live, And I'm Going To Do Everything In My Power To Live While I Have The Chance.

    This story epitomizes the old adage that states: "you can't take it with you when you are gone". I believe this to be a valuable life lesson. It is important to make the most of the time you have, living life to the fullest. Most of us do not ponder mortality until it is often too late.
