Life, or something like it
Tuesday, July 18, 2006
Yesterday while driving to work I was listening to the radio. The regular station was interupted with an Amber Alert for a missing 5 year old girl. Those things fill me with terror, literal terror. My little baby girl is two years old. She isn't in my care most of the time (a fact I hate, but am powerless to change). I can only really feel like I am protecting her while I am with her. What if someone takes her? Will she remember me? She is so little...
It really puts life into perspective thinking about scary things like this. It makes me thankful for my religion even if I don't live it perfectly. I know that our families can be together forever. I also know there is a purpose to our life here on Earth. I tend to contemplate these things here and there in between pacing through my mundane life. It makes some things seem so silly, like the fact that my coworker switched my keyboard with hers because mine is better. Who really cares? Yet so much of my life seems to be taken up with these silly little things. I guess the most important things are our families and our health. We should be striving to protect those two things.
