So What Really Matters?

What really matters when you find out that someone you know has cancer? Does work matter? Does keeping up with the Joneses matter? Having a bigger better house/car/dog/spouse/401k? Is laughing as much fun? Does complaining that your life just isn’t quite perfect even make sense?

Do you think for even a moment that person would doubt switching lives with you if they had the chance?

What do you do when you find out someone you know has cancer?

Do you get angry?
Do you deny it?
Do you become incredibly selfish?
Do you eat all the foods you've avoided because it doesn't matter anyway?
Do you pray?

Do you cry uncontrollable tears at your desk and pray that no one walks by?
Do you try to make deals with God?

Do you find yourself with all questions and no answers?

Do you?
