a few days ago, my family had a cancer 'alert'. The doctor called and stated that they found something. We could not get into the diagnostic center for 5 days, so we had to wait it out. in those 5 days, we waited patiently and did not allow our minds to go to imagination which would result in fear. we turned to God and to each other. we quickly realized that is all we have; that is all anyone needs.
we realized that we spend too much time attempting to attain; when God has given what we need. we embrace the mundane as blessed. we are fully alive to the minute and not wishing for more.
we are thankful. and, we do not have cancer.
