Life repeats itself

A few days ago, my sister was told her husband had multiple myeloma. A cancer of the plasma cells in the blood. It is treatable, but not curable. Her husband of almost 30 years has a long hard challenging road ahead. I pray for them and pray for her.

It was just over 30 years ago that we lost our father to leukemia. Diagnosed during the 3rd week of October 1978 and passed away six weeks later on December 7. She, my mother and I lived through that challenging time and now the two of them battle the demon again.

To my sister and mother, you are two of the most courageous women I have ever known. My heart goes out to you. You keep smiling in the face of adversity and travel the rocky of road of life with grace. I love you both.

Slow down you move too fast

It has been a while since I have posted. To those that have visited and seen no new entries, my apologies to you.

I find myself many times getting caught up in life's fires and trying to put them out. I don't take the opportunity to enjoy the journey through my life. For that I must say I have regret. I must take time to slow down and focus on the things that make this life important, enjoyable and worth living. Family, gratefulness for the gift of grace and the power to be of service to mankind.

I thank everyone, friends and family, or the casual acquaintance who has left a blessing on my life. To you, I wish many blessings and for you I am eternally grateful.
