I just found out that an old friend of mine, not age old but i have known him for almost 35 years, has cancer. He found a spot on his ear and within 2 months it morphed into a cancer that has spread to the bone in his neck. Even if the radiation cures it, it is a cancer that will return. Very bad news.

I also learned that another friend I hae known for even longer, is about to be divorced after more than 25 years of marriage. Also bad news.

And I lost my best friend from elementary school to a brain anurysm not that long ago. And a very good friend of the both of us died while we were still teenagers.

I was beginning to feel very down, almost like giving up. I went for a walk and spent some time with the Lord. I realize that this is all in a great plan and that I need to recognize the joy of having these people in my life even if our time was limited. I know to celebrate every minute I have here and to cherish each of my friends, because as I have learned, you don't know what will happen next.

I thank God for every moment I am here to share the gifts each day brings, and hope everyone else can feel the joy of each day.


Bless us all.
