No News is Good News

At least that's what I thought. For a while, I knew that a close family member over in Germany was dealing with cancer. They came for a visit last spring and shortly after they went back home, she found out she had the disease. We never heard anything and I thought everything was going well and she was getting better. Last night, I got an email from my cousin saying she had died yesterday morning. He said she was in so much pain from the chemo, that she went to the hospital to get a pain pump because she couldn't deal with the pain anymore. It made her able to rest and she died in her sleep at only 46 years old. I take comfort in knowing she's not in pain anymore, she's just sleeping, and that we will all see her again.

It's just a reminder to not take anyone or situation for granted because they could be gone tomorrow. Remind everyone everyday how much you love them and don't go to bed mad. It's not worth it. Enjoy every second, with who ever your with, and whatever your doing. Don't wish you were somewhere else. Chances are someones wishing they could be in the situation you are.
