Some Days are Diamonds, Some Days are Stones

"Some days are diamonds, Some days are stones.
Sometimes the hard life won't leave me alone.
Sometimes a cold wind blows a chill in my bones.
Some days are diamonds, Some days are stones."
           Sung by John Denver, written by Dick Feller

Today is a stone. My brother received official word today that the spot on his lung is cancer. He is going to have surgery on February 2 to have the upper lobe of his right lung removed.

Ernie, I'm so sorry to hear about your brother's diagnosis. The fact that it is operable though seems like a good sign. I'll be sending prayers for a successful surgery and complete healing. Take good care of yourself too, ok?
