Perspective Comes When You Least Expect It
So, I doubt I'll ever be roller skating again. I can't afford to lose use of my hands nor do I want to be injured. There are just some things that should be left to younger people. And let's face it ~ I'm getting older. I don't really like the idea of getting older but the prospect of not getting older is even less appealing.
We visited a friend in the hospital last night. He's 60 and dying from lung cancer. He said he's obsessed with the cancer, it's all he thinks about now. I thought about that last night when I was laying my head down. I'm so grateful for my health today, more so when I see others suffering. My hand doesn't hurt nearly as bad.
