Thanks for sharing this bitter-sweet story. A reminder that we need to be there for those going through tough times, and help them make 'lemonade out of the lemons' life serves them.

A good entry. Good bless!
Good job tracing this journey. I felt like some kind of time transition was needed between, "the highway was his playground" and "a visit to the doctor"
Thank you so much for this well written and thought-provoking story.

The story compels me to ask God to "teach me to number my days."

It also made me hope that the dear fellow in the story knew the Lord. Because if he did, he surely would have had this promise to hold on to as his health declined:

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, yet our inner self is being renewed day by day. For our light and temporary affliction is producing for us an eternal glory that far outweighs our troubles.…" 2 Cor 4:17
