I met someone at the Olive Garden today.
Wait, I always meet people at the Olive Garden when I am working.
I am a waiter so meeting people is part of my job.
But enjoying non-food conversations and liking them is a whole other story.
Seven women (2 adults and 5 teens) came into the restaurant today.
I had the privilege of waiting on them.
It was a great experience.
And then I learned that Laney has cancer.
Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma. EHE, for short.
But you would never know it. She was funny and sarcastic. She seemed perfectly healthy.
It is not fair that an 18 year old girl should get a terrible disease.
I always wonder why God lets these things happen.
But I am not going to focus on that. Instead, I want to focus on the goodness of God.
Who am I to doubt the King of Kings?
Who am I to wonder if the Creator of the Universe can handle cancer?
Who am I…?
As I go to sleep tonight, two thoughts will swirl through my mind:
God, please heal Laney
Thank you for being good.
