In the Blink of an Eye

Every so often, something happens to make you stop and think just how quickly life can be turned upside-down. My friend, Angela (of the awesome Triple Dare Tuesdays), is going through a family tragedy that makes me realize how fragile life really is, and how much we take it for granted at times. Tragedy strikes unannounced. Lives are changed in the blink of an eye. Freak accidents can happen to any of us, at any time. And because of a freak accident, Angela's brother, Chris, is fighting for his life.

Chris is only 26 years old. He has a wife and three young children. I can only imagine what they must be going through right now. Angela has been posting updates on his condition at her blog. Take a minute, if you can, to read Chris' story, say a prayer for him and his family, and if you have the means, make a donation (no amount is too small) to help give his young family some financial relief during this difficult time.

And don't forget to count your blessings...
