Yesterday, I read this story. http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/patti-varney-30-and-linda-woods-60-mother-and-daughter-die-of-cancer/2012/12/09/e1a2915a-3f12-11e2-a2d9-822f58ac9fd5_story_1.html It is about a mother and daughter who were both unfortunate enough to contract cancer. It is about how they supported each other and what they went through. It is a very sad tale. This line stuck out for me in the article
“Once, the day before a chemo treatment, Patti reflected in a blog post on the misfortune of her diagnosis.
When I’m feeling sorry for myself, she wrote, instead of lamenting “why me?”, I’m trying to ask myself “why not me?” Who would I wish this on if it wasn’t me? (hint: the answer is no one.)”
I have had that exact same thought. I guess the question is, why anyone?
