The Rest Is Noise

Photo-of-the-day challenge: REST


Today I enjoyed a restful day at home. I spent time with my family and I worked on a manuscript (which taps me on the shoulder throughout the day and tsk tsks at me whenever I try to watch television or paint my nails).

And then I saw this.

From CBS Detroit:

“A Flint man dying from cystic fibrosis is holding out hope he will live to see his 21st birthday next week, and his mother is making sure he gets a couple of last wishes granted…Everett is hoping people from across the nation will hear Chad’s story and send him a birthday greeting.”

People are encouraged to mail Chad a birthday card to the following address:

9165 Chatwell Club Drive, Apartment #14,
Davison, Michigan 48423

You can read the entire article here.

And as I wrote this precious young man whose days–like all of ours–are numbered, I thought only this:

Love is so much easier than it looks. Just do for others what you’d like done for yourself.

If you have time, maybe you could send him a card, too.

Happy birthday, Chad.
