Sadened and yet inspired

Well I got the news yesterday that the previous evening my friend with cancer was rushed to Hospice and that close family and friends were flying in to pay their last respects and say good bye to a man that just wouldn’t give up. He has taken a turn for the worse and as the minutes tick by it gets more dire and the hope drains out of him. Inspired you may ask? I am inspired by him, for how he has dealt with this aweful curse and for how he never gave up hope, always smiled in the fate of it all.

Life is so, we never know what might be thrown in our faces or turn our lives upside down – at the end of the day it is how we deal with all of this that makes us who we are, makes our burdens lighter or heavier… at the end of the day it is all up to us really…
