It was a Facebook message telling me that she had breast cancer. I cried – hard. It had been years since Janet and I had seen each other. We reconnected on Facebook to talk about our upcoming high school reunion just a few months away. We grew up together – and were best friends from nursery school through high school and spent many hours talking about our futures. Then went off into the world and lost touch. Years later – here we are again talking about our future Only this time breast cancer is part of the conversation.

I was talking with a friend of mine who is struggling with a tough decision. He began volunteering for an organization that he believes in – yet he is discouraged by the experience and is thinking that he may have to resign from serving on their Board. So what went wrong? The answer is a simple one – yet not an uncommon one.
