If My Heart Could Speak
People say the day after a car accident is when the physical pain usually kicks in (if it hasn't immediately). I knew for me though it would be different.There wouldn't be physical pain. After the adrenaline wore off, it wouldn't be long before the sadness would kick in. I would begin to think of how lucky my family and I were to be alive and how close I came to losing them all.I would think of how easy it is to take things for granted.I would also think of not only how fast my kids are growing but how maybe I can slow it down by just paying more attention to their everyday lives. It's important for me to show my son more affection than I was shown as a kid and even though that doesn't seem like it would be that hard, it doesn't come easy. I am trying to break that cycle not only with my kids but with my wife as well. I took her out to dinner tonight. It was the first time in too long. The only thing better than dinner was her company. Just like Echo Park, spending time with her always makes me feel good by bringing back good memories while we're creating new ones.
