Penny for my Thoughts?
Why do people fall sick in this life? I know this is probably not what you want to read. Heck! Even I fought a battle in my mind on whether to post this or not. However, the fact that you are reading this means I decided to post it anyways.
I also know that this is not a traditional post on Missy’s Adventures, but you are going to have to pardon me this time. Thank you (blows kisses)!
In the last two months, I have come across too many Facebook groups and blogs of people who are struggling or have struggled with this gruesome sickness called cancer. Some are still struggling, some have lost the battle, and some have been given the all clear.
I do not need to visit the hospital to realise that there are too many sick people suffering from this disease; the internet is all you need.
Now the questions I keep asking myself is who has the world wronged? Why does anyone even have to fall sick in the first place? Because in my opinion, cancer or any other type of sickness is not something you wish on even your worst enemy!
I personally have no answer to these questions, and most times, I fall short in my little understanding of this issue. However, as a believer, I know that He promised He will never fail, and there is always light at the end of the tunnel!
Although I have an uncle who suffered this dreadful disease, and has been given the all clear (Praise God)! I still cannot fathom or understand what they went through. I just know that it is a horrible, terrible, and awful thing for anyone to have to go through!
Some stories have hit me badly. Like I cannot understand why a three-year-old should suffer when her mates are running around, playing and watching peppa pig! It beats me!
I have also been thinking about how I can reach out in my own little way apart from my prayers. Or, just a way to offer my assistance. Unfortunately, I am no scientist, so I cannot research personally to find a cure (but I wish I could).
At this point, I am asking your honest opinions and suggestions. In my small mind, I have been thinking of doing the 5k run, or the tough mudder run. This just means that I should be more serious at the gym, just so I am fit enough.
But your suggestions are welcome!
I apologise if this is not what you wanted to read, but it is what has been in my thoughts for a while.
This is the second post in the penny for my thoughts series!
