When my best friend invited myself and others to tag along with him on a camping trip, I had a feeling as if it was going to be just a regular trip… I sincerely wasn’t ready for what I was about to learn about our friend… So the people I was with and I set up camp at a pretty lovely camping location next to the lake.
- I realized that the people I was with and I needed to go break some wood for the fireplace so that we could cook our lunch and be warm at the same time.
So I took the axe plus went to task on a dead tree that was already knocked over, my close budy, he went around plus collected a nice amount of wood that was scattered across the ground, but between the several of us, the people I was with and I had a truly nice amount of firewood to last for the fireplace, but once we ended up having some lunch that evening, the people I was with and I were just there sitting around the fireplace plus talking about the nice old times, then what he told me later on that I was genuinely not expecting. He let myself and others guess that he was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. At first I was so stunned, I could not say anything. The two of us just sat there for an hour plus finally I told him that I was upset this had to occured to him. I realized what I said sounded lame, but he nodded. He said he figured that he lived a truly good life plus he just wanted to appreciate the little time he had left. He said that’s why he splurged on a nice portable heating system for the tent. I smirked at that when I saw the glad look on his face. I knew he normally wouldn’t invest in such fancy heating equipment, but this heating system he had was truly nice. The two of us were nice and warm in the tent through the night. When the people I was with and I were wrapped up with the camping trip, he said I could have the heating system when he passed away. I told him to not talk that way, because he was going to live!
