I have a lifelong friend who has been battling cancer.
It has been one hell of a fight. A real boxing match. A full ten rounder, filled with terrible punches and blows. Both have pushed each other to the limit! But, the final bell has rung....
My friend has been defeated.
This man was awesome. Truly awesome. I looked up to him in so many ways. In a hundred lifetimes, I'll still never be half the man he was.
But, I'll keep trying. I'll try as hard as I can. I'll try to be the friend to my friends that he was to me. So, take a good look at your friends. Enjoy them while you can. A friend is a precious gift. Try to be a friend today and everyday.
