I've been thinking about Mason a lot lately. It's hard not to when someone you love has been taken from you so fast. I've also been thinking about my sister and my niece who have lost a husband and a father.
In all this thinking I've come to the realization that the answer to your prayers may not be what you expected. I had been praying for Mason to be well. It turns out the answer to that prayer was that he died faster. Not exactly what I asked for but what Mason needed. Not what I wanted for my sister and niece but then they didn't have to spend months watching him die in uncontrollable pain.
A classic case of you can't always get what you want but rather what you need.
