Some of you may recall that my wife lost her sponsor a few months ago to cancer. She had developed a close relationship with her sponsor's sponsor, T., so she became my wife's new sponsor. They have developed a closeness that can only come from sharing, trust and love.
Today my wife received news that T. has been admitted to the hospital with two lesions on her lung and a mass on her brain. We are both full of sorrow. I guess that's putting it mildly. It feels more like my guts have been kicked in.
I am having difficulty concentrating at work. My wife is on her way to the hospital. I am praying for T. and others who are sick and suffering. I am doing my best to not cry. This is all a lot to deal with at the moment.
PS: I've decided that reading blogs is a good thing to do for an hour or so. And what you have written has made me smile and feel a lot of gratitude. These are life experiences that happen. As my dear mother used to say, "And they will happen more and more the older you get until you hope to be the last one standing." She generally made me smile too.
