I don't really know how to feel, or even react...

Every day, just about, I log on to BaceFook and scan thru the status updates people have... then I play a game or two of dice and move on to other things. I did this exact routine maybe thirty minutes ago, and I'm still in shock.

A friend of mine, from high school, posted something about having breast cancer which spread to her spine. She's my age. She has a five years old son. She stated she will remain the same person and intends to fight this, and doesn't want us to treat her differently. I can respect that, but man, that's a big one to swallow. I just realised why her status yesterday was "angry and upset". Geez. She's on the West Coast, so it's not like I can go over and encourage her... Since we've found each other last March, we've been chatting regularly, just catching up, here and there. I can't even imagine how she must feel... it sucks.

How strange, to think earlier this week I was reading friends status one of which of an ex blogger who's pregnant with her second child, and another who it is her first. Both mamas to be were excited and looking forward to the future, and today this... it's crazy what a difference a day make.

Reading and hearing about things like this really puts everything back in perspective, that's for sure. I will rejoice with my favorite husband this weekend while we'll celebrate his 47th birthday... We truly have to enjoy every moments as if they are our last 'cause we never know what life has in store for us, that's for sure.

Oh gosh, I feel for you and your friend. I know a lot of cancer survivors. I hope that she will win the fight and live a long and healthy life.

Happy birthday to your hubs! Please don't hesitate to celebrate to the fullest. You're right, there are no guarantees for any of us.

Big hugs and love,
T

I totally agree with G-EM. And you have come to the correct conclusion:

We truly have to enjoy every moments as if they are our last 'cause we never know what life has in store for us, that's for sure.

Great words to live by.

And Happy birthday to Mr. Stinky. Hell, you're still kids.

I am so sorry about your friend. 2years ago my bestie called me with the grim news of breast cancer. But she aggressively fought it and it appears that she won. I wish the same for your friend.

I hope your husband has a great birthday.
