As I’m sitting here typing, my issues and problems suddenly seem SO insignificant. I have just found out that a friend of mine has leukemia and that the doctors gave her three months.
Don’t get me wrong. I know that in your situation your problems always seem the biggest. And that the last thing you ever want to hear from anyone is ‘Look on the bright side, at least you don’t …. blah, blah, blah.’ Because what you are going through is NOT insignificant. EVER.
And I’m part of a health and wellness company, so we often talk to people who have cancer, or their families. Trying to convince them that there is other options out there. And I absolutely, 100%, with all my heart believe in our products, so I will be discussing her options with her.
BUT, it is so different when it is someone you know. I’m biting back the tears. Especially after hearing her voice note, breaking the news. She is SO strong! She is fighting for her family – not herself. She wants to be sure that they will be looked after when she is gone. She is not one bit worried about herself. She KNOWS that God will carry her through this.
I sincerely hope that if this is ever my, I can be this strong.
My friend, this one is for you.
