Sometimes, life changes forever in the space of a few moments. Sometimes this experience is wonderful; all too often it can be tragic and heart-breaking. A friend recently shared some thoughts about the aftermath of one of these difficult life-changing moments. Her reflections are worth thinking about:
There is no such thing as hurry.
Even if your spouse doesn’t pay a lot of attention, he/she loves you.
There’s something to the vow for better or worse.
Thinking in terms of “before” is pointless.
You can be completely helpless in matter of hours.
You don’t know what is going to happen no matter how much you like being in control.
Only carry one thing at a time. You’ll spill otherwise.
There’s a lot to be thankful for.
Children are resilient and can be helpful.
People make assumptions.
People can be very kind.
Don’t take the mundane for granted.
We don’t know God’s plan and we have to trust him.
