A few days ago a very good friend's 17yr old son was diagnosed with leukemia. Suddenly all the stress I thought was controlling my life did not seem as important. For example - a job is just that, if I lose mine I can always look for another - the fact that I don't see my kids very much means that they have their own life and that I raised them to be independent and I will cherish every second we have together........ too bad it took something life threatening to have me reevaluate things.
Whatever you find yourself doing this Christmas Eve make the most of every second, appreciate who you have in your life, tell loved ones how much they mean to you, hug your kids a little tighter. And if you could remember this boy in your prayers I would be thankful.
