halloween pictures are up! click me.
an old high school friend passed by tonight to borrow some money. apparently, the guy has been shouldering all his tuition expenses since last year. both of his parents have been in and out of the hospital. aside from shouldering his tuition, he needs to pay for hospitalization and medication of both parents, and on top of that he has to deal with the emotional turmoil of the instability of their health hovering above his conscience. this guy has one of the happiest dispositions i've seen, and he's handling everything in stride. he's finding ways to earn his way through med school, and with the big heart that he has, will surely overcome the obstacles that he finds in front of him.
this makes me count my blessings, and reminds me of the uncertainties of life. love the one you're with, boys and girls. :)
