Hello, I hope your doing well today. I'm doing pretty good. My temporary job got extended another 8 weeks, so I guess they like me, or need me, or maybe both! I'm still hoping it turns into a permanent position because I have grown to like it there, the atmosphere is so much more relaxed then that other place I was at, and the women are fun to work with. My brother in law started doing Chemotherapy treatments to help him live a couple of months longer and he is doing well with them. I feel so helpless though, I wish I could just cure him. I have searched the internet and watched some TV programs that tell of others beating the odds and have shared their stories with him. Maybe something will work for him as it did for them, but at the same time I'm being realistic about it. He seems to be a peace, although not happy about his fate. His is making arrangements for himself and getting his affairs in order. All I can do for him now is be as of much comfort as I can to him by cooking him some good meals and just being there for him. I thought I already appreciated life, but this has brought it to a new level for me. I first learned to appreciate life when my Father passed on at an early age, and again with my mother and mother in laws passing. But something about his fate, a healthy man all his life, just struck down, has made even more grateful for every morning when I wake with my health, with a healthy and loving family and all the little things that I use to think were big things, are just gone. I think this saying below fits just right with me now, having lost and still losing, everything in and around my life has greater meaning. But try to not let it get to that point that you have to lose something or someone special. Know that everything around you has greater meaning then you may have given it already, with that you will truly appreciate your life in a whole new way, and that can only lead to good things right? right!
