one minute you're fine...(lyn)

I think about my weight and what I eat.  I think about what I can do to make money.  I think about my son and imagine the life he is now living and how happy he is to be living it.  I think about my dad and how my mom's life now revolves around his care.  I think about how I should be exercising more.  Then I get a call from a close friend who tells me about one of her best friends.  Someone I know.  A beautiful woman with two boys in college.  She gets a bad headache.  It won’t go away.  She has an MRI.  The news is not good.  She has an inoperable brain tumor. My everyday existence feels so trivial, my worries so small.
