It’s His Party And I’ll Cry If I Want To

A friend of mine has a very serious health condition.  He’s had it for some time but has been able to live life with it relatively on the norm.  It took a turn for the worse recently and the outlook was not good.  Hearing this news was the last time I was moved to tears over something sad.

His doctor wanted him to try a certain medication that, although still very new, was showing promising results.  The challenge:  qualifying to be eligible to receive the drug. About 6 weeks ago, I received a text from him saying he was approved and the pills were being sent by courier.  Reading his message was the last time I was moved to tears over something beautiful.

This was written in response to today’s Daily Prompt.  It’s my friend’s birthday today.  Coincidence?  I think not.

I am blessed to have you in my world dear friend.  I wish you a very happy new year of your life.
