Off Topic.....Adam

June 15th, 2011 at 02:27 am

Today, my friends son, Adam, lost is fight against cancer. He was just 21 and had been fighting this nasty disease for 11 years. His poor mom is beside herself and in such pain over the unfairness of the hand her son was dealt. No mother should ever have to suffer the loss of a child. Adam, our world was a better place because of you. I promise to watch out for your mom and help her figure out how to go on with you now in Heaven.


Ironically, at the other end of this spectrum, my little houseguest was in tears tonight because her parents offer no support to her. She was tearfully asking me why no one cared that she just got all A's, no one called to ask if she was feeling better and has no idea how she will pay for her next set of classes. All I could do was hug her and reassure her she is not alone.

Mind boggling, heartbreaking day.

    There was a boy in our small town that just lost his battle with brain cancer. So sad. His mother basically watched him slowly die. You are right. No mother should have to go through that.

    Thank you everyone. It was a tough day yesterday and the irony of the two situations was just incredible. Could you imagine what might happen if Adams mom could spend just a few minutes with my houseguests parents? boy...
