Just wanted to let all my Spark Friends know that even with the "perpetually sunny" exterior, things in my life don't always go the way I want them to, the way I planned or even ... well. As a matter of fact, bad things happen to me too. I just try VERY hard to look at them for what they are, moments in time.
This morning, literally seconds after posting my happy LALALALA status, I got the phone call from the oldest child (18). He was in an accident.
I know a few things:
I know that all of you are going to look at this and send your support. For that, I am truly grateful.
I know that car is a goner, and I am not even a mechanic.
I also know, that my son is alive. He is going to sit down and have dinner with me tonight and he is going to go to bed here at the house in his own bed.
I know the day was still beautiful because when I went to get lunch today, several hours later, I walked out side and the sun was still up and the birds were still singing. The day was still amazing.
I reminded myself that bad things are only bad things if you let them be. I am sure that this experience will be of value and is a good thing.
I am really curious though, what will come of this? What lesson does he need to learn? Or is there someone he is supposed to meet when he takes the public bus down to campus? Will he one day need this experience in his past to help him though a situation? I wonder what amazing things we will see because of this.
The Universe is full of surprises, you know.
With that thought out there, have an Amazing weekend. Smooch the people next to you, hold hands, love. Above all, appreciate everything.
PS - thanks, in advance, for all the love and support that I know you will give me. You all are AWESOME!
