Bad news X2
Typically news from friends is good. Unfortunately sometimes you get news that perhaps you really didn’t want.
Yesterday I was informed that some good friends of mine are getting a divorce. Now I always thought that if a couple was planning to get a divorce, I would notice signs of the upcoming doom. Not so. I really had no idea. It definitely comes as a surprise and I’m still trying to look back at times we all hung out and I still don’t see it. They always seemed like a great couple.
News like that is bad but on top of this news, I got some worse news from another friend. He found out last week that his father has terminal cancer. It’s progressed so far as to pretty much leave him with 2 months to a year (according to the doctors). It’s actually looking more like the 2 months at the rate that the cancer has spread throughout his body. His father doesn’t want to undergo chemo which of course means that there’s probably only enough time to say the goodbyes and make amends. It’s a hard thing for me so I could only imagine how hard it is for my friend. I only hope that this will pass easily and painlessly.
We all need to take a break sometimes and think about the really important things in life because life can be a lot shorter than we expect.
