He'll be OK.

My friend's wife will soon be gone. Cancer. He told me he was sure she was in God's hands. That she'd be OK. He had a dream about it. But he came to the conclusion that if he wanted to find any lasting peace he would have to do two things. The first was to forgive God and everyone he knew for the things he thought they had done to him and develop a new sense of gratitude for everything including simple blessings like food,  shelter and health etc.  Hot and Cold running water (that's safe to drink). A sunny day.. Life. And the second thing was to help those who are not so fortunate. He started volunteering at a  homeless shelter and has been delivering meals on wheels... This has changed his life.  "I thought my purpose was my family and my work and now I realize it is not.  I used to write checks to charity and now I give my time." He will be OK..
