It is not typical of me, to post sad stuff, but today I am. We spend a lot of time in fantasy, ya know?! We read these wonderful stories of love, and romance! There is some conflict, but always a Happily Ever After. Today, I found out that a young man (mid twenties) from church, was killed in a terrible auto accident early this morning! He was coming home from his second job. His pretty wife and two baby girls are left behind. He was a teen ager when I met him. A star on his baseball team. After going away to college, he came home and met the sweetest little lady, and fell hard. They got married, when I was still a busy wedding planner. I "did" their wedding! Fairly soon, sweet baby 1 came along, soon to be followed by sweet baby 2. Now, momma and baby girls, are left without Big Daddy! It makes me sad. He was soooo young. And the hard part for me, is that I want to be mad at someone. But there is no one to blame. No drunk driver, no speeding or reckless teen, no obnoxious trucker, or anything. Just a terrible, terrible accident. It's the kind of thing that could happen to anyone. So, in the coming weeks, as I make food, for this grieving family, I hope I remember to cherish every moment I have with my family! I hope, I can be a little more patient. A little more loving and forgiving. I hope to remember what is truly important. It's not the dirty dishes or the lost shoes, but people God has put in my life, and heart. The people, he lets me live with, and love. I hope, that I can cherish them and that they'll feel loved by me. Cuz, isn't that what it's all about anyway?
Remember to take a minute, to remember that these crazy people that are part of your life. Are a gift. Let us cherish these moments we've been given in this wacky life, to be with those we love.
