Almost seven months have passed since I asked for thoughts and prayers for my family. Though the surgery to remove my family member’s brain tumor went better than expected, they ultimately lost their battle with cancer this week. As I joked about future life yesterday, I was really dealing with heartbreak and loss. That said, I saw many miracles happen over the past half a year – one in particular that I’d been praying for for years – and I’m choosing to focus my emotional energy there today.
Please give a hug to your loved ones today, and give a smile to a stranger, even if they just cut you off. Life is too short not to.
