Things happen; good and sad.
On the good side, Lisa, who 20 years ago was in a wheelchair suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, climbed to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro one week ago. The photo is her on the summit. She had a tough battle and fought the disease for 9 years, 4 of those years in that wheelchair. It was a tough battle back then. Not much was known about the disease. But she never gave up and finally realized this dream of hers. We are all so proud of her.
On the sad side, A friend from a long time back died yesterday of brain cancer. Karen was diagnosed only a short time ago and she went fast. She was a fantastic person, so unassuming in life, yet would do anything for you. She ran in a lot of the local races. I caught up to her in one a while back. She was having a tough time that day. It was near the end and we ran together to the finish line, pushing each other to just get there. We crossed the line just about together. She was one of those good people we need here on this planet. She will be dearly missed.
I don’t really have a big point here. Maybe that life is precious. It throws a lot at us. A lot of times it is not fair. All we can do is our best and try to never give up.
