Tragedy Reminds Me...

..to treasure those I love and be a blessing to all those around me.
This morning DH called me from school to let me know it had been a hard morning. Their buildings and grounds guy at school found out his wife was in a fatal car accident this morning on her way to work. There was freezing rain and snow overnight and the roads weren't so good. I don't know the particulars, but it doesn't matter. A man lost his wife VERY unexpectedly this morning. She also leaves behind a teenage daughter.
To be honest, I can't even get my mind to conceive of how I would react if I got that news about my husband. It's so easy to just go about life as if nothing like that will ever happen. When DH said goodbye after the phone call he snuck in the comment, "I'm so glad you made it safely to work."
Yeah, it could've been me just as easily I guess.
Moral of the story: Give your kids and spouses a good squeeze today and treasure your time with them. Spread love and joy wherever you go, someone is surely in desperate need of it. Speak life into people, even the mean ones. Be thankful...every breath is a blessing straight from God, the giver of all good gifts!
I love you, all my dear SparkFriends, and am so thankful for the help and encouragement you bring me
