Life really is Precious.
Driving home tonight I saw a crash happen right in front of me. A vehicle completely spun out and ended up facing the wrong way on the street. No one was really in the wrong and thankfully everyone was OK. It was scary and sudden and I was reminded that it can happen to anyone at anytime. Once the dust settled and I knew everyone was OK I headed home. My dog was here to greet me like she has been thousands of times before, but this time was different. I got down on the floor with the little curmudgeon and held her tight and truly appreciated having her in my life. I thought how awful it would be to not be able to hold her again, and the reality is, there will come a time where none of us have the privelage of these physical bodies that we can use to express our love for one another. Moving into the frantic holiday season where everything is rushed, it is more important than ever to take time to slow down and let the people and pets around us know how much we care about them.
