Today was a real wake up call for me, sometimes you just have those days and I think they are necessary. Life is so precious, and we need to look around at what we are blessed with and be thankful each day. Today I was making a left on a street and all of the sudden a car showed up. I looked but our car has a blind spot and I didn’t see the car coming. I thanked my lucky stars and God and thought that would be it for the day.
We get home and do our normal routine, but things are hectic and Van need to be let loose to roam and play. SO he gets on his bike and I strap baby into my sling and we are off to the end of the driveway but Van doesn’t stop he rides right into the road and there is a mini van heading straight towards him. I yell and panic, my whole life flashed before me. The car slams on their breaks, and I bend down to tell him that we are not going to the park and mommy is having a heart attack… He cried about not going to the playground, but I need to instill in him the importance of safety and looking both ways before riding into the street. It’s so important being safe, taking care of ourselves, and watching over our children. I was right next to him when this went down… He is my love my light and the mere thought of anything happening to him makes me sick. I will protect him with all I have and all I am. when he cries in the night I want to wrap my arms around him and tell him his bad dreams are only his imagination and they will go away.
I know I am not in control of his life or Jet’s for that matter and things may come that we will have to deal with but that part is hard for me to grasp. It is God’s will and I need to give up the control to him.
Today a 3 x world champion passed away, someone I met when I worked in the surf industry and someone my husband looked up to with great admiration. Andy Irons you will be missed. This life is precious, tomorrow could be your last day. Make today count, and don’t forget to show everyone in your life how much you truly love them. God Speed Andy!
