Recently we had the misfortune of nearly losing the sweetest, most precious James (SPJ) when he decided to use his head as a skipping stone across the asphalt (sans helmet).
Granted, we can’t encase ourselves in bubble-wrap and simply not ‘do’…even I had to acknowledge that anything can happen at any given time, sure as you sit a plane could fall right out of the sky or a blip in your ticker could just take you out!
HOWEVER, we have a million-billion choices a day and from clicking that seat-belt, to strapping on that helmet to wrapping-it-up, your choices could be the difference between coming out the other end whole or even making it out of the woods at all.
Lastly, from my glass soapbox of a pulpit I have to say one of my favorite motivating thoughts is this, at the very least think of those who cannot yet still try – DO what you can do to stick around please.
and p.s. Never miss a kiss…
(Jackie knows this! Way to wear that seat-belt girl! So glad you’re okay!)
p.p.s. Special thanks to Tyler, the EMT’s, UNM Hospital ER (The traumatic injury ambulance destination of choice ;) ) and the Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit!
