" This is a really hard life isn't it" ? This was a question my father-in-law Ed asked me the last time I saw him. Ed, sadly lost his fight with brain cancer just 9 months ago.
As I now celebrate my 12 year "cancerversary" I cannot help but reflect on that question he asked me.
The short answer is yes, it is a hard life. But... it could be so much harder.
I am sad for so many family and friends that did not survive and at the same time I know how blessed I am to still be here.
God gives us all work to do while we are here and it is so exciting to see what He brings to me each and every day.
Yes, it is a hard life, but it is the one He has asked me to live.
17Nevertheless, each one should retain the place in life that the Lord assigned to him and to which God has called him.
The Lord will fullfill His purpose for me.
