There's no guarantees.
He lay in ICU...11 months into stage four.
Pneumonia. Infection. Lung Cancer.

She cries...
'I wish I would die right now & he could just come back home.'

There are no guarantees.
Planes crash into houses.
Kids wrap themselves around telephone poles.
Mother's stick little heart shaped stickers on their babies mouths.

We can never predict.
We can never tell from one moment what the next may hold.

May we never forget to value each moment and take them just as they come...
one by one and subject to change...
