Gloomy Tuesday

I just heard that my cousin is in the hospital again. He was diagnosed with "soft tissue sarcoma" last year. When we visited last April he just finished his chemo and radiation and looked good. He just celebrated his birthday end of August. On a bright note, he's a fighter and has a lot of faith.

Last Sunday I received an email from my friend that one of our dear friend's mom just passed away. It just made me sad to think that both her parents are now gone. However, it's comforting to know that our friend is also the "strength" in her family. I can imagine her now, just taking charge of any given situation.

As I'm writing this blog, I am deeply saddened that unfortunate things do happen and it can happen to anyone. We live, we die, and for some of us, we fight.

Please say prayers for my cousin, that he overcomes this hurdle upon him, and for my friend's mom, that she may rest in peace, and to my dear friend, that she may have extra strength and faith that, this too shall pass.
