Please, if you have a moment, stop over to see Ellen. She is suffering awful side effects of a cancer fighting agent. She and her wonderful hubby Curtis just got back from a special get away. Dispite her ongoing fight against this disease, they manage to make the most of their lives. Its very touching to see such love in a couple.
They are making every day count. Partly because of the cancer and partly because they only met a few years ago and are stuffing a life times worth of love into their mature relationship. You can see the affection between them in the photos on both their blogs.
Keith and I are a few years behind them in age. Our relationship began many years ago when we were just teens. Fortunately, we both are in relatively good health. Sometimes though, I get overwhelmed with a panicky feeling. Its silly really, but sometimes I feel life is passing so quickly and I get frightened that our lives together wont last long enough. Maybe this feeling is part of what helps me appreciate the preciousness of our love.
In the bigger picture, life and love are fleeting things, really. Both are gifts, given for just a short while.
May we all relish every moment and every blessing.
