When it rains....
I came home early from work today so that DH and I could take a nice walk. We walked down our favorite bike path (still covered with snow) and onto a wooded trail that we often ride. I felt very carefree and completely happy.
Deep into the woods, my phone rang...it was my cousin telling me that my mom had just been in a car accident! Mom was "fine" but the car was totaled - she sideswiped a Tractor Trailer.
I am now having a meltdown. I am heading down to Sarasota this week anyway - but feel like all the wind has been taken out of my sails. I'm grateful as all get out that she's OK, but the thought that she might have been hurt or killed is just knocking me down. I can't lose my mom now....
I'm still not sure about this mortality thing. I just don't like it right now. Too fragile. Too unexpected. Too scary.
