Don't waste a day

At the moment I'm in waiting mode. It feels like life is on hold.

And it does feel like I just want time to slip by as quickly as it can.

But yesterday as I caught up with friends, I was reminded that this was wrong.

My friends were driving, with there three older kids at home and their one month old in the back, when a car rammed into their side. The car rolled twice, and they had to be cut out. They miraculously came away with only minor injuries, but as I sat in hospital speaking to them, there amazingly unhurt little boy in my arms, I thought, make every minute count. You just don't know when you or the one you love will be taken away.

Dont waste a day.


  1. This is a beautiful post. Something we can all stand to be reminded. I am so glad your friends are ok.

  2. So true. We all spend too much time running after things and too little appreciating what we have. Its situations like these that make one realize what is really important. Glad that your friends and the baby are okay.

  3. Amen, LG!!!! Oh my goodness - I'm so very glad they are ok!!! And really - very well spoken - and a major AMEN!!!!!
