prayers continue.......

prayer meetings have been constant since finding out about our friend Corrine. today she started her chemo with a combination of a new experimental drug. 5 to 6 hrs. of just sitting, waiting for the STRONG meds to flow into her system and start the dirty work of getting rid of that cancer........she has no idea of how her illness is affecting those that love her! how precious every day, every hour, every minute.......we must never lose site of the fact that we are only here for a short time! make sure we tell those we love how important they are to us, make sure we don't lose site of the big picture, make sure we are humble and can admit when we are wrong, make sure we don't put off until tomorrow what we can accomplish today. there are lessons in every situation we experience, we would be amiss if we didn't learn from the sad and ugly experiences as well as the beautiful and pleasant.

linda-you are so right. we are here for such a short time. today my step daughter called to tell me that a friend of ours a wonderful guy in his early 50s just died as his teen aged daughter drove him to work. He had heart problems, but still, can you imagine? People think that it is only older adults who lose their friends, but even mine are starting to go and am only 51. it is so important not to take anything or any one day or anyone for granted.
