Venue: Garre Winery & Vineyard, Martinelli Center, Livermore

Last Sat., Hy and I went to a site visit for our bride who’s getting married this month. It was a very warm Sat. afternoon. After driving cross the hills to Garre Winery and Vineyard at Livermore, we both longed for some refreshing Jumba Juice.

While waiting for our Jumba Juice to be ready, I glanced over the store’s “Customer Spotlight” board.

The posting says:

Customer Spotlight: Chris XXXX
Smoothie: Power Mango A Go Go. No Pineapple Sherbet. Sub Blueberries.
Diagnosed with brain cancer a year ago, Chris is now unable to get Jamba Juice himself.
His good friend Scott comes in, ordering four power sizes on his visits.
Scott tells us that Chris can tell if the drink is made wrong at first sip.
When we first met Scott, we thought his blue mango drink was interesting and
wanted to know about him and found out about Chris.

Chris inspires us to do a little more.

Sometimes we can be so lost into our little world of busyness, especially in the Silicon Valley. It’s post like this humbles us, makes us treasuring every moment we have, and remindes us what is really important in this life.
