I just got finished with a Doc. Apt. which turned out negative
and was having a Pity trip.
Sitting at my Grandson's house waiting for him to return from a Movie
with his friend. I got a phone call from his Mom that he had been
in a car accident. She works clear across the city and the accident
was right by his house. I don't remember driving over there but I
do remember the thoughts that raced through my mind. Please Dear
God don't let him be hurt, I will never ask you for anything again. I
will stop complaining and work harder at my life. My heart was
ready to explode believe me "no chronic pain" crossed my mind.
There he was standing beside their banged up car, white in the face
but so happy to see Grandma. So many cop and ambulance etc.
lights flashing all over, it made me sick. I could not get my arms around
him fast enough and he said "Hey Grandma this is a good birthday present
for you I am ok". The paramedic told me to watch for any of the signs
but he felt he was fine. The trucks were smashed big time, things
could have been worse. He wanted to stay with Grandma last night, we
are very close. So all night I have been watching him making sure he
is alright and guess what the pain has taken second base.
My point things can in a matter change life as we all know but for
me this pain I deal with is minor to what I could have experienced
for the rest of my life yesterday.
Just me grateful for the blessings I have and reminds me of all we
have in life to give our energy and every precious moment to.
Have a great day I hope.
