Today I am really grateful to just to be alive.
I’ve spent the evening around at my best friends place tonight, and while we covered a lot of subjects in the 5hrs I was there, the most reoccurring one was about cancer. After losing her father to it last year, she’s now nursing her mum through it. And just this week my boss’s husband was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer: he’s only in his 50s.
Health is something we all take a little for granted (or perhaps a lot), and when it’s gone life changes forever. The human body is an incredible, finely tuned instrument, and life itself is so fragile.
Today I really stopped and thought about it, and I am truly grateful to be alive. Lets hope I can hold onto that thought for a while.
