in the moment

He was washing windows. He was up four stories. His safety harness/rope snapped. He fell four stories and landed on his head. His motor skills were taken from him. His mind still worked. He has had to learn how to walk all over again.

Never would I have hoped anything like this on anyone, even a jerk of an ex-husband of my dear friend.

Live life in the moment. Take nothing for granted. Tell those you love that you love them. Rinse and repeat.

Mind, blown.

What a tragedy, an awful surprise.
live life each moment, even when it seems to be taken from you.

Oh, that's so scary. I'm glad to hear that he's going to be okay. I've always wondered if those guys get hurt -- they have a job that I could never do with that kind of risk.

it's a horrible thing to hear, to learn, and worse, to have happen to those you love and/or know.

think of those good thoughts, be thankful for who you know and are getting to know... and as yer father says,

serve others and serve well.
