Oh Wow. Oh Wow. Oh Wow!

In the eulogy Steve Jobs’s sister describes how on his death bed he looked at his family for a long time, and then over their shoulders past them.

His final words were, “Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow!”

It reminds me of the incredible privilege it is to share those moments with someone who is dying, as they begin to slip in and out of consciousness and catch a glimpse the journey that lies ahead.

“Oh wow, Oh wow, Oh wow.” So full of incredulity, wonder and promise…
