This week has been a rather difficult week. My Uncle Mike, my Dad's younger brother has been given a very short (1-2 weeks) amount of time left to live.
He has cancer that has been unresponsive to chemo and has spread rapidly over his body causing one of his lungs to collapse.
We all know God is the God of the impossible...but, I also know that God's plan generally doesn't make sense to us and our logical mindset.
We have to trust his plan and know that only He can determine when we will be born and when we will die.
I find myself feeling rather selfish. Thanking God that it wasn't my Dad.
My heart weeps with my aunt and cousins because even though I don't understand their loss, I do. I can't imagine my life without my Dad. He's such an awesome man of God, husband, father, and grandfather. He would do anything for any of us in a heartbeat, no questions asked. Only now that I have become a parent do I understand the sacrifices my parents made for us. I have no idea what his dreams and aspirations were when he was a kid, I don't know what he considers his biggest accomplishments or failures, what he wishes he could change about his life, or how he wants people to remember him when he's gone.
I have so much left to learn!
Thank You, God for giving me another day! I pray for many, many more!
