Imagine spending your life wanting praying to die dreading every minute. Never being able to feel the warmth or happiness of the sun of the snow, the flowers, the sweet melody of the birds. Never loving yourself, unable to admire the full beauty of nature.
Then one day life is the most wonderful experience, no more internal pain. Everything is beautiful, the sparkle of the snow even the dark grey clouds seem to dance across the sky.
I am sure at some point in a person's life, they come face to face with the possibility of illness and death. I think most hope to slip peacefully away in the night. Never experiencing the pain of leaving friends and family.
A slow progression of a smokers cough that just won't quit. Month after month. You have quit you keep telling yourself. Next month. Soon, very soon. Your doctor is concerned, we should run some tests. The first test showed abnormalities. Another test, will give a more definitive picture. Are there any unusual lung diseases in your family? How about fibrosis, immune diseases, cancer?
A peacefulness comes over you. Isn't this what you always wanted, to die. For a final release from your pain. Peace. But the pain has dissipated, life love and hope have found you.
Then you go home look up parenchymal pulmonary abnormalities. Sadness has found you. You say "But wait, I've just started living."
Perhaps it's not fibrosis, it just some antibody antigen reaction. Treated with steroids. Stop worrying don't look anything up. At least not until you have a definitive answer.
You haven't made a difference, You haven't left your mark for the better on this world. You've got a career to start. You have bills to pay, you can't leave your family with them. You want to help people, You want to love and be loved. You want to travel. You have so much to do. what about children. If you can't have any you can adopt. What about getting your own house and that big dog. Swimming in a clear blue ocean with white sand tickling your toes. Making love on the beach on a warm night under the full moon.
You use to feel so old, you were old since the day you were born. Finally you have found your youthful heart and realize "Hey, your just a baby". Life has just begun and a beautiful life it will be if given a chance to live it.
Accept what God has in store for you. You may find peace for eternity with all those you love. Isn't this what we life's about living a good life until we me our creator. Did you live a good life? This doesn't me give up, fight the good fight and live life to the fullest like everyday is your last. You could meet with an accident tomorrow.
Just live, love and never let go of HOPE.
