Why is it, those who live a healthy, happy lifestyle get thrown one of the worst curve balls in life?!?!

Yep, a family member of mine has been diagnosed with a lifethreatening illness. Still in the the process of testing but will be starting treatment in a few days. Prognosis isn't sounding good but you never know!

I know i shouldn't dwell on it and just sit and hope for the best but basically it's immediate family. If it was a relative twice removed, it wouldn't affect me quite as much, but when it's hurting someone who is very dear to me and i love unconditionally then i can't help but ask how, why and if and rant and scream to nobody inparticular!

So now i am more determined to compile the family tree. I've got snippets of info and am somewhat in contact with someone who's own family tree is connected to mine. It's going to be a long but interesting journey. I wonder how many skeletons are in the closet so to speak hehe.

Until next time
make the most of life now
