Things Found out After the Fact

The other day I was recalling a conversation I had with a friend a few months ago. It went something like this:



Friend: "Do you remember that one guy who hung out with my group of friends from that other school?"



Me: "Yeah, I think so."



Friends: "Well, somehow I was saying something about you recently and he remembered meeting you a couple times...maybe when you were sick or something...anyways, he thought you had died!"



At this point, I think I actually laughed. I knew people I did not know that well or people I went to high school with that I never talked to again may had assumed this over the years if they never heard about or saw me again. It was strangely funny to me. I was supposed to die and well, I did not-it is funny and wonderful at the same time.



Today, I am grateful for: a massage!, friends, family, going out with old friends from the 'cancer world' tonight



Love,
Rach

Rachel I stumbled in here by complete accident and am so happy to bump into you old friend! I have been sitting here ignoring my kids reading this blog forever! What an amazing life you have had, you know? I mean re-reading it all is so amazing. Thanks for reminding me to be grateful.

Rachel I am trying to post a comment and it is not working. Tomorrow you will probably see all of them. Well, reading this blog makes me want to hug my babies a little bit tighter and snuggle with them a little bit closer. Thanks for reminding me to be grateful! Love Sara

Kent turned me on to your blog when I visited with him over the holidays. I've been reading ever since, but I had to comment because this also happened to me. I had lost touch with a friend who we all thought was dying the last time were able to get together. What a surprise to run into him again after years of thinking he was dead. Not only is it a weird feeling, but it really makes you appreciate that person and how valuable all of our lives are. Thanks for not dying.

Oh man, how random is that? I mean, how do you even respond to that besides just going 'well, I'm not, YAY!' Bizarre.

But, I have to agree with Mary, YAY to not dying!

Keep your head up gorgeous.
