There are life changing events that happen in everyone’s life. No one lives a perfectly easy life filled with daisies and unicorns and picnics and sunshine. No one.
Yesterday, was the anniversary of one of these life changing events for me. It was a moment in time that I will never forget, and just recalling how I felt at 5 P.M. on March 16th makes me shudder. See, my oldest daughter was in a car accident, which she was hit by a car while on her bike. The story can be found here, and to date it is the top viewed post on my blog in 4 years.
This event changed my life forever. I hang on a little tighter when my kids hug me. I TRY not to get so bent out of shape over the little things, although battling good grades is still my breaking point. I don’t spend as much time cleaning or doing yard work, instead I make the most of the time I have to make memories with my family and friends. When people reach out to me and offer their help, I let them, more so I welcome the effort with open arms.
With that, I’ll keep this post short, and sweet. I’ve got a work out on deck after I finish this post, and then I PRAY for a good nights sleep. It’s been 9-10 days since I’ve slept more than an hour at a time, and I’m a zombie!!
Have you had any life changing events that stand out in your life? What lesson did you find most important from these/this event?
Have a great night everyone!
