Earlier this morning I was lamenting how my two children are sick with an upper respiratory infection (my son also has a touch of croup). Then, just a bit later, I learned that one of my skydiving friends found out that his grandson has just been diagnosed with leukemia. His grandson is only 2 weeks older than my son and has played with my son several times at our skydiving dropzone. I cannot begin to imagine the anxiety and grief that comes with such a diagnosis and I will certainly set my thoughts on his family for the next few weeks.
Today, I am incredibly grateful that both of my children are healthy (most of the time).
