I found an old friend yesterday on facebook. A friend from college - she was probably my best friend.
Somehow we lost touch. She did come to my wedding but moving overseas and all that kinda put an end to that era.
I found her last night on Facebook and asked her to be my friend. This morning I saw that she had added me and just now I had a chance to read her wall. I discovered that just last week she was released from the hospital after two weeks recovering from surgery to remove ovarian cancer.
I was flabbergasted. I believe my mouth was hanging open. I’m merrily going about my life, worrying about things like how to coffee stains out of my shirt and one of my old friends is struggling for her life.
Kinda puts things in perspective.
