It happens to the nicest people.

Posted by Sandra on July 20, 2008

My beautiful sister-in-law Carol has cancer.  It’s rampant, and the docs have done all they can do.  She can only be made more comfortable now, with pain medications and the love and care of her family.

My brother is so amazing.  I hurt so badly for him.  Physically, really, my heart hurts.  I cringe every time the phone rings, for fear it’s the “call”.  He’s such a good man, she’s such a good woman.  Four children, grandchildren, very active members of the church, very loving people.

Why does this happen to the nicest people?  I think Tony Snow said it well, in his testimony.

Please take a moment to read his beautiful words. 

When you sit with your family tonight and groan about, well, anything… think about those that sit with their family and wonder when God will take them.  Will it be today?  Tomorrow?  Next week?

Sort of makes your “I gotta get the lawn mowed” a little insignificant, doesn’t it?

    I am so sorry to hear this. Cancer sucks. It really does. I’m so sorry.
