LIFE IS Fragile
Well, with weekends like this past one, I will be just happy to keep the weeks going and forget the weekend. Two things happened and they were more lessons to me. Life is sometimes a cruel teacher.
Let me assure you…life is fragile.
First, I learned that one of our blogging friends has a health issue ahead of her. Saturday afternoon, I was just stunned that this could happen to someone I know! All signs are pointing toward her having leukemia. That is about all I know, but the good news is, we have scheduled a time to get together on Saturday night. Life is too fragile to not take advantage of the short time we have to spend together A lesson on how fragile life can be.
Sunday morning I learned that a young woman with two babies just lost her husband. I didn’t know them all that well, but they had visited our church several times. They like so many others were having some financial struggles. He recently had an appendectomy. It was taking every penny to get by. A week later, he is having severe back pain, calls for an ambulance. It was too late. Gone in a blink of an eye. Lifes and futures altered forever.
It’s just something to make me realize that life is fragile.
There’s tons of things that can be learned when life throws these types of things at us. Life is fragile is just one of them. Love the ones that are closest to you. Cherish each moment as if it were you last.
