#ESMEINK : "Precious Life" Day 25


"The trouble is,

you think you

have time."


Today's journal is short. It's a reminder to love deeper, life more passionately, breathe more deeply, and cherish moments. Even the thoughts in between moments. Because-as if I need to say it-life is short.

My husband and I had a scare tonight.

Our son, 5, nearly fell out of his bedroom window. It's high enough that It could have taken his life.

Thanks to our backyard neighbour, who saw him climbing out, -unlocked our gate, ran up to the back door and started ringing the doorbell and knocking frantically-he was ok.

My first thought was something happened to her. Then she yelled up at my son (as nice a she could as to not scare him) to get in the house.

 I saw him half out of the window, and very thankfully, he quickly got back in the house.

My husband had ran up the stairs to see him while I thanked her, in shock.

We are the lucky ones tonight.

I squeezed my kids longer tonight and explained more than ever how much we love them.

It's so important that they understand.

"Guard your time fiercely.

Be generous with it,

But be intentional about it."

-David Duchemin
