I won't be celebrating Valentine's Day this year. Lol. The irony, or Karma of life if you want to see it that way, after I posted up the Anti-Valentine's Day Song.
And no its not because Mr. Wonderful bailed out on me. Its more of unfortunate circumstances.
You see his uncle has cancer and this week might be his last. Now I would be really freaking insensitive if I just go ahead with what he planned.
Mr. Wonderful wanted to but I insisted we do not. He still tried to make plans for a casual date like playing Frisbee instead on Saturday but I know it won't fall through if a wake is to be held. His family will need him to be around.
I wish I could do something to help and its frustrating to be so helpless in such circumstances. The best I can do is hug Mr. Wonderful and pray.
I do not know what to pray for. For his Uncle's recovery? It'll take a miracle as he's in the last and final stage of cancer but if I pray that his death would be painless and bring about a closure for all, its like I'm praying for his death.
Cancer is a painful way to die, it puts on a lot of burden on the family emotionally, physically and financially.
To tell you the truth, I've never experienced the loss a death can bring to a family.
The closest was my cousin's death when he was but 11 and my great-grandmother. But I was not physically there to experience the sorrow and pain of witnessing the slow death of someone. I never hope to.
Now, cancer can be heredity or it can be avoided as far as possible. I guess my message is to smokers out there.
I met a strong robust hale and hearty man two years ago at a Christmas party and now.. He'll be leaving behind a three-year old boy who has not yet grasped the concept of the finality of death.
To Mr. Wonderful I love you and I'll be there for you and your family.
