test of faith

It's a test of faith when someone so young dies.  UH, it's a test of faith when someone dies while so many who are mean and miserable live.    Daniel was 24 years young....with the rest of his life ahead of him.  I had a feeling that he shouldn't have the surgery, that he really didn't need it.  I had said to my daughter...he should postpone it.  Apparently they had done that once already but the Navy wanted things done and finished.   There wasn't anyway that I could convey my feelings for not wanting him to have the surgery.

24 years.  Not enough time at all. 

This morning I got dressed as usual for work....then realized I had black pants with a scrub top that has teddy bears: in navy outfits.  I cried...again. 

Driving to work..My thoughts were on Daniel and the family, as soon as I turned on the radio I heard Garth Brooks "The River"

You know a dream is like a river
Ever changin' as it flows
And a dreamer's just a vessel
Trying to learn from what's behind you
And never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores..and

I will sail my vessel
"Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters ar my sky
I'll never reach my destinatin
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
"Til the river runs dry

Read the rest of the song....
Daniel is ok now...
We just have to learn to keep living.
