An Extra Hug...

Seems like so many of my friends right now are sick or hurt and I feel so helpless! I found out that our cute neighbor who has battled mouth cancer the past year but finally in the fall was able to beat it, is now dying from lung cancer! It just doesn't seem fair! Bad things shouldn't happen to good people! I wish it was an inmate on death row dealing with this and not her!

I have another friend whose little girl had surgery last night to remove a brain tumor and the surgery went really well, so let's keep our fingers crossed and have faith!

And last but not least a close friend of mine broke his ankle badly last week and had surgery on it this morning and the surgery was a success, so hopefully he will have a speedy recovery, especially since his wife is having a baby in May!

Just makes me stop and think about how grateful I am for my health and the fact that I am not hobbling around on crutches or having to go to chemo twice a week. You just have to really enjoy every second of every day and let those around you know how much you love them! Life is to short to argue or fight.. I know easier said than done, but I am so grateful and blessed for my amazing family and friends. I don't know what I would do without faith or my Heavenly Father who get me through each and every day. I love you all more than you will ever be able to know and am so grateful that each one of you is a special part of my life. Give your kiddos and spouses and animals and friends an extra hug for me today. xoxo

Who has the cancer? I am sorry, it is so very hard to hear things like that, and amazing that people are actually strong enough to get through those hard times!

It is always good to stop and think about how blessed we really are in our lives. Thanks for making me stop and be thankful. I wish those people the best.
