Reading through the blogroll over lunch today I discovered two very important events that had taken place this week. I learned that Farid and George had won a business plan contest, gaining $10,000 to help startup their restaurant. And then, as I continued reading I learned that Andrea passed away from the cancer that she has been battling.
This is life. It’s up, it’s down. It’s pain and suffering, and it’s also love, joy and happiness. Farid has seen some of the worst life has to offer, and now he is enjoying something wonderful, while Andrea is no longer suffering the pain of disease, yet the same disease had allowed her to become a beloved hero to many by sharing her strength and compassion with fellow patients.
Life’s like that. I want to go home and hug my wife….
