So many people in my generation are losing parents. This year that has really been a resounding theme. So scary to me.

But what is even more frightening is when my friends’ spouses start having health scares. One friend’s husband is being treated for prostate cancer. Last night I found out another friend’s husband had a heart attack yesterday. The terror in her voice rocked me to my core.

Blessedly, he has been given a positive prognosis and she considers this a big, fat Merry Christmas. Blessedly.
