The other night there was a horrible accident on a highway not far from where I live. A tractor trailer crashed into a line of cars that had stopped on a highway. The accident took four lives, two of them young people in their twenties.They were all strangers to me, yet my eyes filled with tears as I watched the news.
It made me think how precious life is and how quickly it can be over. It made me think of why I never hang up the phone with my husband, children and granddaughter without saying, “I love you!” It made me think of all the reasons why we should live every moment to the fullest, enjoying the time we have with family and friends.
Somehow I feel that taking the time to think about these things will honor the four innocent people who lost their lives that night.
May they rest in peace.
