Ground

It breaks my heart when I consider what my priorities were five minutes ago and what they are now, having just learned that a kid I went to high school with – a kid who had leukemia when we were in junior high – has been diagnosed with tongue cancer. He started chemotherapy this week; today he had his tongue removed.

He’s 23.

That's awful. That's really sad. And such a shame that something so tragic makes us re-evaluate our own lives. My dear friend's marriage broke up late Monday night and it's still cutting me up to see her.

Sometimes life isn't fair.

OH my gosh, that is awful. It really does make me so sad for him, his family, his friends. Is he married?

Stace said...

Oh no. My prayers go out to him and his family.

So very sorry, Alyson. Life's so friggin fragile, isn't it? We really gotta take advantage of it while we're here for this short time, don't we?
