Yesterday we visited an old friend we had not seen in awhile. He is younger than I am and he is dying. The doctors say he could die tomorrow or he could live two more years. The reason I am even mentioning this is because I was so impressed with his attitude. When we walked in, he was lying down watching TV. He gave us a hardy welcome and when asked how he was feeling, he said "terrific". He said he didn't hurt anywhere and that is amazing because he has advanced rheumetoid arthritis. At one time he played the piano for the church we were with. And he was not just an ordinary piano player, he was an outstanding one. He had his own style and added a lot of extra notes in everything he played. He has been unable to play the piano now for several years. He wants to keep living but he isn't afraid to die. He knows heaven will be his destination. I wish everyone could approach their last days like he is. What an inspiration he is.
So now, let's start linking those inspirional posts. All of you inspire me by the way you continue to link with us week after week.
