Things in my life lately have not been that great. And I have been getting depressed and down. But tonight it all was put in perspective for me. I found out that a person that had been a large influence on mine and my children's lives has passed away. She was a great friend and wonderful teacher. A couple years ago she was diagnosed with an aggressive type of cancer, she fought it all the way. It has only been a couple months since I had seen her at a school function where she would come and show support for the kids. But I now know that we have not seen her because she was too weak to come out in to the cold and that the treatments were no longer working. She was a strong woman and a loving wife and mother. Looking at what she had went through and that now she is in the arms of God what i have gone through is nothing. So in memory of her and to honor her I promise to pick myself up and get moving and to quit letting all these little things get me down.
I have my health and my family's health, we have a home and are safe and loved. All will work out.
So it is all a matter of how you look at it. There is always others out there that can be an example to you if you open your eyes and heart to look.
Thank you for listening to my rambling while I sit here and morn the loss of a friend that hid how sick she was from as many people as she could so they would not worry for her.
