Motivational Moment

Hey guys it’s Gary here. I have been having a lot of things not going my way this morning but that’s life right? Well, this short little post is about a young lady, I met today. Like I said, I was having a bad morning and was upset about it until I met this young lady. I met this young lady while in the check out line and I noticed that she had left an item in the cart. I was quick to tell her about it and then with a thanks, we just started shooting the breeze.

She told me that her nam was Sharon and that she just got back home from a tour in Iraq. I told her that I was extremely grateful for her service and was much obliged. She told me that she was excited to be back with her family but unfortunately it is a bitter sweet reunion. I asked her why and then she told me that she is battling with stage 4 brain cancer and only has several months to live!

I swear my mouth probably just dropped, right in front of her but I was just shocked! As bad as I was feeling about my day, it was nothing to what this courageous young lady was going through. I spent some more time with her afterwards and then prayed with her. We both cried and she thanked me for the gesture and for caring. It was the least that I could do and it reminded me that life is short and to never take any day for granted. It also reminded me of this article from CNN. Take care my brothers and sisters!
