The life apprentice

If we've learned anything from Brett Michaels (and who hasn't?) it's that no matter how awesome you are, no matter how much money, how many headbands and how many number one hits - if your daughter gets sick, it all pales in comparison.

I've heard about 1800 celebrities say that the highlight of their life was having their kids.  Folks who have won Oscars, Emmys, Super Bowls and the Murphy Family Olympics... It doesn't matter - it's all silly compared to the things that truly matter in life.
I've heard enough people say that fame is fleeting and money brings more problems than you'd think.  So why don't we believe them?  Why do we keep chasing after the superficial stuff in life?  If having kids is a bigger deal than winning the World Series, then why don't we celebrate our time with our families more?  Seems like we should.  Maybe they're right? 

We could all learn a thing or two from Brett.

Fame and money are probably fun for awhile, but you've gotta remember that every rose has it's thorns...
so true...so very, very wise...
