Uncle Ray

The banner for the month of March is a picture of my uncle Raymond when he got a gift of a sword.  This was a long time ago and I don’t remember him getting the sword, but I do remember it hanging above the mantle of his fireplace for decades.

I love this picture for the pure joy on his face.   Looking at it, I can feel the happiness he must of had in that moment when receiving that gift.

He could use some of that joy these days, as he was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and is now undergoing radiation treatments.

Life can be short and cruel, enjoy every second of it you have and don’t count on there being a tomorrow.  Plan for a future, but live in the moment, because life is happening right now!
