Proof positive that money won't buy happiness...or good health.

Yesterday's news announced that Apple's Steve Jobs is having to take another leave of absence due to medical problems.  This is the third time Jobs has had to back away and attend to his medical conditions.  Less than two years ago Jobs took a leave of absence citing the need to work on some "hormonal issues".  In truth, he was in a Memphis hospital getting a liver transplant in an effort to fight off pancreatic cancer.

We who admire Jobs business acumen are again left to wonder if his cancer has come back and just how serious is his latest medical setback.

I have great admiration for Steve Jobs; his innovative ideas have spurred a huge comeback for Apple computer.  I'll be rooting for him to get through this.  Steve Jobs is a billionaire.  I couldn't help but wonder how many of his billions would he spend in exchange for excellent health.  I suspect he would pay a bundle.

So, as is common for most of us, when we wish for riches perhaps we should pause a moment or two to thank our creator for the blessings of health.  Perhaps we are richer than we think!

You are absolutely correct. I always think of the scenario "if someone gave you a choice for a million dollars or your right arm which would you choose?"...The answer is clear. I like your blog post they are insightful. I like to write that way too on my blog here is the URL:
