Burning Bush Moment…
Today I experienced a moment where my life flashed before my eyes.
The new car I purchased has new technology that has automatic braking – this feature failed today and activated for no reason in the middle of a roundabout.
And a truck was heading right for me.
I was stuck – the vehicle was disabled. And I was sitting there in what seemed like a massive length of time, in reality, it was seconds – watching this truck come towards me.
I experienced many thoughts in that moment but the first things I experienced was..
“This is the moment. I am going to die”
And in that moment, I thought of all the things I hadn’t done
All the people I needed to see to tell them I loved them. ( you know who you are )
I wasn’t scared as my FAITH holds me – BUT I was sad as I wasn’t ready to go.
The man upstairs has other plans for me – things I haven’t done yet as the truck did not hit me.
I escaped death.
And no this post is not an exaggeration. This happened at 6.48am this morning.
I am GRATEFUL that I am alive.
GRATEFUL that I am healthy.
GRATEFUL that I get to see the people I love and care about again.
GRATEFUL for the simple things.
“What would I tell my 10 yo self to do”
Simple – “Grow your hair long, walk barefoot in the grass, ride more horses, play more music and sing until you have no breath ”
That response more than ever means MORE to me today.
You see, I want to LIVE.
Today I have been given a gift.
I am eternally grateful.
And for those of you that are important to me ( and you know who you are ) and we haven’t interacted for a while because we have all been embroiled in the craziness of this world. I have one simple thing to say.
” I love you – Love yourself and make time to LIVE”
