A gift and a curse

From one of my favorite TV series “Monk,” Monk displays his uncanny ability to notice the finest of details that others overlook. Stretching the notion of gift and curse, is my diagnosis of AML a gift, a curse, or both?

It is probable that there is a variety of thoughts out there regarding my diagnosis of AML. I am here to tell you emphatically that it is not a curse! It is not a punishment. It is not a result of choices, actions or inactions on my part or anyone else. It is not a matter of fairness, justice or retribution. It is just a matter of fact.

I do know that there is a purpose to life. Among other things, this life is a time to be tested. It is a time to be refined. It is a time to become a little better today than we were yesterday. This particular trial and opportunity for refinement may not be just for me. In fact, it is likely that it could be more of a trial for my family and friends. So I plead with you, continue with hope and faith! Look to God for guidance, he does answer prayers; he does want the best for each of us. We are his children and often times what we think is best for us does not coincide with what our Heavenly Father knows.
