Do you ever have moments in life when you realize just how unimportant most of the things you worry about are? I'm having a few right now. No, they aren't happening to me personally, but I am amazed by the two strong women I know who are going through them.
One is a friend from elementary school. We grew up and were friends all the way through, but somewhere along the line, some time high school I guess, we lost touch. I recently found her again on Facebook. Only to find out she is battling stage 3 breast cancer, she is only 33. She has two sweet little ones, how can this be happening?
The other one is an especially close blogging friend, for whom my heart is breaking for over and over, everytime I read her updates.
It puts a lot of things back into their proper perspective for me.
