This morning while running my usual errands from work I ran into a friend of mine while entering a local business. We always hug and say how are you doing. He has had a lot of health issues in the past so I like to keep tabs on him. What a shocker!...................He now has a new problem as on a recent visit for a check up they have now found a cancerous tumor in his bladder. He will begin 6 weeks of chemotherapy next week.
As I got into my car..............I wept and I wept openly!
We are the same age!
I am just wondering why some of us are so affected by poor health. Of the affected persons I know, some have had some bad habits while others have lived a clean lifestyle free of alcohol, tobacco or other forms of substance abuse.
How grateful I am for my wonderful health. Sometimes we often forget that our "sweet" present life could change at any given moment.
