Contentment Therapy

This weekend I attended a cancer fundraiser for my cousin Randy. He is 44 and has Melanoma skin cancer. It seems like yesterday we were all boating and having a great time. In a instant his life was forever changed. His wife was hospitalized this week and her mother passed away last week. Life is so precious and I now am faced of the reality of this.
Today, the carpet I hate doesn't bother me as much or the material things that my heart desires. My cousin would give any material item to have his health back. Sometimes it take a tragedy like this to make one realize how precious life is and to appreciate the simple things that life has to offer. I have taken the time today to savor the smiles of my children and be thankful for the wonderful friends and family that I have been blessed with.

Having precious family and friends with severe health issues does help put things in perspective. Our good friend just found out he has cancer with no hope of recovery- Stan has been so encouraging though even in his time of stress- encouraging others in the hospital- praying with nurses- It is so neat to see!
