It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth -- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up -- that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.
- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Driving to the city this past Friday....
I missed being hit by a trailer which unhitched from a truck, by a few mere seconds.
As I watched the trailer in my mirror, flipping at least 3 times while debris flew in every direction, 100 thoughts raced through my head.
One of them being, "What had I done in my day to delay my travel by those few seconds?"
How our lives can change within those seconds is astounding to me.
Even if you're doing it all right, your next breath is not guaranteed.
I'm thankful I got to see this day.
Hug my kids.
See the blue.
I keep seeing that trailer in my mind~
as it was when I passed it, and its condition seconds later.
(Thankfully the driver was not seriously hurt.)
Why did I miss it?
I have no idea.
All I know is I was given another day to live my normal life.
For that I am thankful.
Wishing you a NEW Wonderful Week.
