Twists and Turns

Wow! Life sure does take its twists and turns! You can be cruising along one day and wham…the brakes are put on and life goes in a different direction. Sitting in the hospital room waiting for my husband to come out of recovery after a ruptured appendix sure brought that to light.  I know, we hear it all the time…

Life is short and sweet, enjoy every minute of it…
Live in the moment…
Stop and smell the roses…
You never know what you have until it’s gone…

All of those sentiments flashed through my head and continue to do so as I think back on the last 24 hours of my husband’s day.

Work…
Son’s soccer game…
Meeting at son’s school…,
Home for a late dinner…
Bed…finally!
Brakes applied…trip to ER…
Emergency surgery …
Beginning of the road to a hopefully complication free recovery…

How many times does this happen in the lives of  so many? How many times are those unexpected events life altering and sometimes tragic? Gives me the shivers and makes me want to go home and hug everyone a little tighter, make room for those people in your life who mean so much…

But life is soooo busy…until that bump in the road slows you down…and the brakes are put on and the direction changes.

  1. Prayers for Chris! Hope he okay!! Take care and thanks for your beautiful thoughts.
