Day 49
Listening to: Calling All Angels
Thought for the day: Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone. ~G.B. Stern


On Sunday my high school life met my professional life and the result was miraculous. There are no words to express the gratitude I feel right now. It’s like a ginormous gratitudeapalooza exploded in my brain!

Though the story was on the news, I’m not going to name the people because I don’t want to step on anyone’s privacy. They know who they are and many of you do too. Here’s the story. A coworker of mine was involved in a very bad car wreck Sunday night. His car landed in a creek upside down rendering him unconscious……………… unconscious with his head under water. People living near the creek, one of which was one of my high school friends, heard the crash and went to investigate. Upon the discovery of the wreck they sprang into action. Entering the cold water, they tried to free him but couldn’t. They ended up holding his head above water until the rescue team could arrive. He is going to be okay. HOLY COW!! I cannot even breathe reliving this story.

I don’t have a photo to use for today’s entry except for this one. The sun was out in more ways than one today and X marks the spot on being thankful. This experience made me fully realize I don’t tell some of my friends how much they mean to me. If you’re reading this, you probably fall in that category (some of you I do tell, but it’s a small percentage). I’m going to try to do better.
