Life is a long journey and its up to you to choose your path. Who is important to you? Who is not?
When the news came over three years ago that the cancer was back, my heart broke. Mom was very stubborn and said no, I couldn't come. I thought about defying the order -- how I wish I had!! The journey from finding out her cancer was back to the day she died was very short.
Today is a gift without a promise of many tomorrows. Make it the best of everything. Hold on dearly to those close to you -- before it's too late.
