Lauren was getting her hair cut at the salon today. She hears a very load crash. They move to the front of the salon and there is a car sitting in the salon. An elderly woman had crashed into the salon! No one was injured. But about a minute before the crash a woman had been sitting against the front window. She had just walked back to the station. Had she still been sitting in front of the window, she could have been seriously injured or worse.
Lauren and I laughed about what happened today. I mean, the odds of this happening have to be about the same as getting struck by lightning. But step back and think about it, and you have to thank the Lord that nothing worse happened. Someone could have been sitting in front of that window. Our whole family goes to this salon. It could have been any of us sitting in front of that window.
What this reinforced for me was that we need to live each moment as if it is our last. Lauren has faced her mortality this past year. But we still end up getting caught up in the day to day issues. We try to make money and work 18 hours/day. Starting today I am going to enjoy my family more; try to get better organized; see my friends more; laugh a little more; donate my time a little more, and have a lot more fun.
So, grab your partner and head over to our B&B! It’s time to relax.
