You go along in life thinking about the mundane things.
Is the leak a plumbing issue, or not?
Will I ever get the leaves cleared out from the yard?
Then you get a dose of reality and it takes your breath away.
My aunt--my father's sister-in-law--was diagnosed with cancer last year. Now she has weeks or less to live.
Next Tuesday is the two year anniversary of my Mother's death from cancer.
I don't think I care about leaks or leaves or stimulus packages or bipartisanship.
Or any crap.
I can only think that one minute we're here, and the next minute we're not.
I can only think that we need to cherish those minutes we have together.
Because one day, you might only have a week's worth of minutes left.
