This has been a month of disease and death.
This is only the second week of the month. I already come to know of three deaths.
My colleague's father passed away after getting a heart attack for the third time.
My best friend's father in law passed on after a massive stroke. That is after a tumour the size of a soccer ball was removed from the liver. The cancer then spread to the backbone. Another operation was performed. The lung was infected and collapsed. Then came the massive stroke.
I helped a friend put an obituary for his founding partner's death. He lived up to the ripe old age of 80 plus.
On the disease side a close friend's mum was diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas. The chances of survival is maybe 5%.
It made me think hard. Life is so fragile. It makes me wonder what and why I am sometimes sulking, ranting and fussing about. My problems seem so small compared to all that some of my friends and colleagues have gone through. I am sure many more people are facing bigger challenges in their life.
I thank thee for all I have. I thank thee for protecting my family, friends, acquaintances and myself. I pray that there shall be abundance for all. I pray that there shall be nothing that is insurmountable for anyone that is facing the challenges in their life.
