This is probably going to be one of my shorter blogs. I feel somewhat whistful today as I heard two acquaintances- a teacher my wife worked with and a former (school age) neighborhood friend's wife both have cancer. I believe they are BOTH younger than me. I have also had some family members experiencing some health scares. While I know I am neither invincible nor am I able to totally dictate my OWN or my loved ones health , I still feel resposnible to those I care about to look after them and to look after myself. I have had a chance to renew one relationship that I had missed out on for various reasons mostly beyonf my control , namely my habitual plasma (donation ) appoinment. I know I am closing in on a milestone. But that is not why I do it.
I am grateful to my Higher Power (Jesus Christ) that I am still healthy enough to be able to help my fellow man.
