Today I saw someone who I didn’t know if I would see again, when I last saw them. This angel has had stomach cancer, so her stomach had to be removed. She is now being fed by a feeding tube. She’s an older lady, so I know the constant doctor appointments, hospital stays, surgeries, pains and probably more than I can imgine is a lot on her frail body. Yet, she keeps pushing forward.
Seeing her today made me smile. I tried to cherish my time with her, not knowing if it would be our last time together. She is a fighter, but one day we all must leave this Earth and make a transition. To where? Well that’s only for God to decide.
I wish I could take her pains away and cast them into darkness never to be felt again. But, I can’t. I can only pray for her strength as she endures what many can’t. She is fragile, yet so strong.
I wish death never existed. I’ve cried too many tears over this. I’ve cried because at times I felt lost. I’ve cried because I’ve felt alone. I’ve cried because I would never see that person again on this Earth. I wish death would die.
So for those that are already gone and for us that still need to make that transition, I pray your soul peace. We only get one life, so make the most of each moment. Yes, there will be days in which you get mad. Just don’t stay mad. Smile as much as you can. Laugh as hard as humanly possible. Fall in Love. Walk through the sand. Watch the sunrise and the sunset. Be your best you.
No one knows when death will come for them. But today, I got to spend some time with an earthly angel, and I really tried to maximize on the experience.
