I was hit with extremely bad news since my last post. I was hit with the reality of life . A friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer. He always was a very athletic person, which he showed through his collegian baseball career. He was always injury prone though and had been complaining about knee pain for years now. Though, when he told me about it I was so shaken up that I didn’t know what to do. Yes, I know that millions of people have to go through this, but I never knew that I would be so close to it. It only feels as though it was yesterday when we were taking a walk against cancer and now he has it.
The cancer has spread throughout his knee the doctor said, but he is in high spirits. I hope you take this post as a wake up to not only help the fight against cancer, but to be grateful for everything you have in your life. For your health, your family, and the ability for you to help those in need. Because that is a brilliant thing that should never be taken for granite. I am blessed to have a son who is healthy, and a family that loves me. So please take the time today and smile. Do something good for someone, because I think we owe it to ourselves as humans.
And although you don’t know him, please say a prayer for my friend Pat. I know he’ll win this fight, but any bit can help. I’m sorry for the depressing post this time around, but I think it helps to explain the reality of life. I think that thoughts and expressions are meant to be seen whether in dialogue or on paper. I am in good spirits due to such an awesome person. And I hope my blogging community can continue to be behind me til the end.
Thank you and God Bless
