As i posted in my previous post that i needed to visit an old friend of mine who is sick, i am glad now that i have managed to pay him a visit after a few missed turns and overshots.
Upon arriving at his doorstep,i called out "Robert, Robert" he took a peek through his window pane and suddenly he repsonded " is that you Eugene?" gladly i replied "sure is. As the door open, i saw one frail figure walking with the assistance of walking frame, and i was glad, i met up with an old friend.
I spent about two hours chit-chatting with and old friend(didnt know that he is already 62, and how time flies)reminiscing the old times, and i asked him about his health condition. He told me that he was suffering from colon cancer which has since spread to the other parts of his body.
He even told me a dreaded news that his doctor told him that he had only two months to live out his life, i didnt ask when would that time frame expire, i just hope that i can still see him on my next few visits.
Talking to a friend who has walked toward the end of the line,has really humbled you as a person, and how this category of people face life knowing that life itself will soon if not sooner run out on them can teach you what life really is all about.
I am still trying to digest what lessons i can possibly learn after meeting an old friend, but one thing is for sure is that one must always try to bring joy and laugther to our friends, it doesnt really matter if you are called a crown sometimes.
As i made my way out of Robert's house, i wished him well and promised that i will be back visiting, and profusely he thanked me for spending my time chit-chatting with him, and to him it was precious.
P/S : That are just things you can do to bring joy to others
