Six Word Saturday…

This weekend could’ve been very different!

I woke up this morning thinking how blessed Ed and I are to still be together, and how different this weekend  would’ve been if Ed had died on Sunday night while having his heart attack. (he survived what’s known as ‘the widow maker’)  It gives me chills, now, to realize how close Ed came to meeting his maker.  In fact, the person who arrived at the ER immediately before us actually didn’t survive.

The date of October 25, 2015 will be forever etched in my brain.  It was the beginning of a new life for Ed and myself–a second chance at life together. This life may be a little different than our previous life, but that’s okay.  We’ll tackle life’s obstacles together.

I thank God for each additional day we’ve been given, and plan to make the most of each and every one of them!  Folks, never take your loved ones for granted.  They can be taken from you in the blink of an eye, before you even realize what’s happening.  Make every day count!

  • It’s been a while, but today I’m joining Cate over at Show My Face for her meme “Six Word Saturday”.

  1. What a fabulous attitude! Make each day count! Praying that you’ll have many more years together.

  2. Can’t even imagine. Sending positive vibes for many more years together.

  3. agree, nice reflection.

  4. Yes, we must take the time to appreciate and be grateful for each moment we are granted and realize not everyone is as fortunate not only in terms of time they are granted but in the conditions in which they live. So sorry you and Ed had to go through the experience, but look at it as a lesson in the necessity for mindfulness and gratitude. Hugs to you both

  5. Praise God that Ed made it out alive!

  6. God is good. Great advice for all of us!

  7. So happy for you Kathy! Live that life! 🙂

  8. So glad he’s okay. Praying for complete healing and many more years for you two to be together.

  9. God bless,
