My Decade Starts Tomorrow!!.. Perspectives of life, health and devastation
I pray you are well. ... As the new year and decade were upon us I thought, great, healthy start! As previously shared I wound up with a freak accident banging my head, wound up in the hospital the second time in a month... (the other due to congenital issues), and today was in a car accident with a HUMMER! Toyota Camry, vs. Hummer... guess who wins?! It has been 12 years since my serious car accident where I was nearly killed and 10 years since I've gotten a traffic violation.. (knock on wood). No violation today, but I've decided I need to start my decade tomorrow :). ..... As one who tries to take such good care, remains exceedingly fit for my 45 year old body, I am mindful that perhaps as folks said, I have 9 lives. ... Yet too, I must maintain faith, hope and optimism as I am so grateful I wasn't more seriously hurt today. I too think of how we must all stop, pray and be mindful of the devastation in Haiti. If we all take the time even to give what we can through the Red Cross or some of the other relief agencies, we can make such a difference. I promise to help out, won't you too?
I guess no matter that which we hold as "a bad day".. there is always perspective taking, and the mere sight of the devastation in Haiti brings me to my knees.
May you all be well
Peace and Blessings
