Cherish Life

by | May 7, 2015 | Blog | 0 comments

This week’s blog was supposed to be about my recent Pro Football Hall of Fame race weekend. I will share later. My world was rocked last week. A good friend of mine died of breast cancer last week. She loved life, and lived it to the fullest up until  her last breath. My heart is heavy over the world’s lost of such a wonderful person.

My life was turned upside down when my mother died. I sunk into a deep depression. I found my way back to myself. I learned to live my life, to love my life. Tomorrow is not promised, so live/love enjoy every moment.

My friend was such an inspiration to so many. She touched so many people lives. After she was diagnosed with breast cancer she tok on the motto #PRESS based on Philippians 3:13-14

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heaven ward in Christ Jesus.”

Still can’t believe she is gone. Her death brought back so many painful memories of my mother’s death, as well. It is so hard to say Goodbye.

Or goodbye may not be the proper word. See you later because I know I will see her in heaven one day.

I will mourn for a while, and then I will continue to live my life to the fullest. I will continue to PRESS!
