A man overheard a Ham radio broadcast one morning and what he overheard was some an advise an older gentleman was sharing:
"It's a shame you have to be away from home and your famliy so much," he said, "Let me tell you something that has helped me keep a good perspective on my own prirorities. You see, one day I sat down and did a little arithmetic. The average person lives 75 years, so I multipled 75 times 52 and came up with 3,900, which is the number of Saturdays the average person has in a lifetime.
"it took me fifty-five years to think about this in any detail." he continued, "and by that time I had lived through 2,800 Saturdays. I got to thinking that if I lived to be seventy-five, I only had about a thousand of those left to enjoy."
