life has a way of always keeping you on your toes
life being life
the other day i got a horrible phone call from a linden firefighter, "tom, yes, this is edward from the linden fire department, your wife was in a serious car accident"
now i cannot ever tell you how that felt, my heart bled. i then asked, "is she ok?" - i had to wait for his response which was only 2-3 seconds long but may have well been hours
i kept thinking, hes going to say shes ok, hes going to say shes ok. "yes tom she is ok and in stable condition, her car flipped several times and she is a little banged up but we are taking her to the hospital"
i lost it. imagine everything you ever loved, stolen right from you - nothing should be take for granted ever. i love my wife and with out i am not me.
i thought , "God please i have not had enough time with her, this isnt fair!" but she is home now resting as i am thankful that the call was not worse.
as for the car. totaled. prius drivers you are in one hell of a safe car
i love you sheila
