I heard two stories recently of folks we knew who were suffering from severe health conditions. One of these is brain-related and the other is lung cancer. They’re both in their late 40s/early 50s.
Every time I hear one of these stories, I’m reminded of the sheer randomness that defines this life and this universe. Today, we hear of things happening to someone else. Tomorrow, we might be the subject of these stories.
More than ever, these stories drive home a simple idea. If you wake up tomorrow with a reasonably functioning body, make the most of that blessing.
Do good work, be kind, laugh, do what you said you would, be generous with hugs, and, most of all, be grateful for what you have.
Life might be shorter than you think.
