I learned today that I have now lost a second friend to pancreatic cancer. She was a mother of four and she just turned 40 last month.
She turned 40 last month.
I realize that times are tough and that we are all struggling to get by and to get ahead - but please, take a few minutes to connect (or in some cases, reconnect) with friends and family in coming weeks, if you can. I know you are busy, I do. But I also know from very, very personal experience that someday you will give just about anything to be able to see those people again. And you will miss them more than you could ever imagine around the holidays. Now if you will excuse me I am turning OFF the computer and going to take my own advice. Quickly.
