Into perspective

My husband was in a car accident on Wednesday of this week.  Thankfully no one was hurt. 

While trying to come to a stop, at a stop sign, his soda bottle fell out of the cup holder, and rolled under the break peddle. He was unable to stop, he crashed head on into another car.

My husband was upset, because he loves his lil sports car. I told him that it did not matter about the car, because he is alive and well.

Today we got a phone call from the body shop, his car is totaled.

Shortly after that phone call..I got a call from my sister letting me know that a dear family friend's Father was just killed in a car accident.  55 years old, leaving behind a grieving family

If that doesn't put things into perspective I don't know what will. 

Always kiss your friends, and family good bye.  Don't take people for granted because in an instant your whole life can be turned upside down.
