Today we got word that our very good friend's
Sister-in-Law lost her battle with cancer.
That in itself is sad, and she leaves behind a family
and friends (many from childhood) who love her.
She also leaves a loving husband
and two very young children. They are 7 and 4 years old.
I cannot even imagine the pain they are in right now.
Each of us has our own hardship, periods of sadness,
bad days, stresses over everything from money to husbands
and children who either don't react quickly enough when we
ask them to do something, or don't pick up after themselves...
but just for today, let us try to be aware of how very lucky we are
that we are here and we have them in our lives .Even if just Yesterday
that we were wishing to be somewhere else ( if only for a little while)
and the idea of a George Clooney look alike who knows what a hamper
is for wasn't just a bit more attractive then the guy who comes home to us each night..
let us just try to remember that not everyone gets a choice to try harder today
to make their marriage all it can be, or to try to be more patient with their children. For Fran.
