Lucky Girl

A friend of a friend passed away today. He was in his 30s, engaged to be married, and diagnosed unexpectedly with terminal leukemia. He lived only a few weeks after his diagnosis.

Kind of puts things in sobering perspective, doesn't it? This week has been tough. Really tough. But not compared with others' struggles. Stories like this one literally make my heart hurt, and in the next breath I'm grateful for that very heartbeat - overwhelmed by all of God's goodness and everything he's given to me, grateful to be living another day with my husband and my daughter, even when those days are tough.
