Okay, so yesterday I found out that one of my friends from high school had a heart attack. WHAT!?! I am 25 (26 in 3 weeks if anyone wants to get me a gift:))!!!! At 25 I should not have to worry about one of my classmates having a heart attack!!! Sometimes, I think that my life is just passing by. I take my life in stride most of the time. I am not one to let things really get to me, and I am a genuinely happy person, most of the time. But really-a heart attack-serious business.

I had lunch with another high school friend today. She found out that it was due to a blood clot, which was probably caused by the medication he is on for his thyroid problem. I just can't imagine. I thank God that I am healthy. I have never been diagnosed with anything and the only medication that I am on is my birth control and the occasional Goody's for a headache.

There are moments in our lives that make us think and reevaluate. This is one of those moments. I will continue to pray for P, a quick and full recovery. I can't imagine being in a position where I thought that I was dying because of the pain I was in. I pray that God would give him peace of mind and he will be able to go back to his everyday life without any lasting effects.

Mary, I know exactly what you mean. I went to a funeral yesterday. One of my old BFFs from high school, her dad died last week in his sleep, he was 56.

Going to that funeral yesterday really hit me hard. None of us are promised anything. Not tomorrow, not health. Thank God I have my health. At least for today anyway. And my dad (who lives with us) is 78 and I fear every day I am going to find that he died in his sleep or something.
I know I shouldn't let the enemy do that to me, but it's a battle I fight every day.

Have you seen my post for today? There is a song I love right now called Healer, you should totally go watch the video and the story behind it. Powerful. Actually, Jillian might have told you about it already.

Anyway, sorry, I feel that was a little random, but just know I kinda get where you are coming from.
