sometimes, you can be sitting there completely absorbed in your own little world & one thing happens that makes you stop and realize how your own problems pale into insignificance
we stress & worry about 'getting' cancer.. fear eating away at us... the word just sends shivers up most of our collective spines.... as if cancer is the worst thing that can happen to us
but cancer is most times curable.
Motor Neurone is not.. we heard yesterday along the community grapevine that someone we know (the wife of a golf buddy of dutch husband) has just been diagnosed with this dreadful disease... and while I don't know her very well, my heart goes out to her and her family.. it has certainly bought home to me, just how very lucky I am that I had cancer and how important community is... when things like this happen.. people cook, help out in anyway they can and pray for the family affected... I love it.
how precious every single moment of life is.. I want to grab it with two hands and run.. and i pray that I become a 'better' person for the life that i have, every single moment. the sad, the happy and the in-between.... cancer was a gift, in hindsight
