I had plans for lunch today with friends, but one of them got in a serious car wreck yesterday, and her car is totaled. She and her husband are fine, but shaken and bruised.
But… I care about this person very much. She’s a good friend and a wonderful person. When I looked at photo, and saw her husband (the fence builder) standing beside the heap of red tin foil that was their car, I was first shocked then grateful. We are so fragile and so finite. It’s really impossible to appreciate each other too much or value our lives too much. Every passing beautiful moment lasts only a little while and never comes back.
