Sunday Confessions Nov. 13, 2010
It's time once again for Sunday Confessions. This is a weekly meme started by yours truly as a way to get to share a bit about myself and also learning more about you. Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate.
The topic for this week's Sunday Confessions is "being thankful". With Thanksgiving coming up it is common for people to think about reasons to be thankful. I know my family does. I have to be honest with you, sometime I forget to be thankful. I take for granted the opportunities granted to me and I take for granted the people closest to me. Often people don't realize this until it's too late. Until they have lost what matters most. I had a rude awakening this week. How, you ask? On Tuesday morning of this past week, my husband left to go to work. It was a beautiful morning. He kissed me goodbye before he left, just like always. I was occupied and I didn't pay him that much attention. Ten minutes later this happened:
First let me tell you that he is perfectly fine. What had happened is that an oncoming car hit a deer. The deer flipped up in the air and landed on my husband's car. All persons that were involved in this accident are fine. Unfortunately, the deer didn't make it. This was a completely humbling experience for me. I'm a busy person like many of you, I wear many hats and am often pulled into several directions. However I have learned some very important lessons this week. Be Thankful! Stop and smell the roses. Let the people in your life know how much they mean to you. Show them how much they mean to you. This could have ended so differently but I'm so glad it didn't. So here is what I'm thankful for:
I am thankful for my husband because he makes me laugh, he takes care of me when I'm sick, he makes me coffee every morning, he listens to me talk about the books I love, he's a wonderful father, he doesn't take me too seriously and because my life would suck without him.
What are you thankful for?
