Seconds can change a life. I was driving home from kickboxing today, and right before my eyes I witnessed a car slamming into a motorcycle rider. The crunch. The crash. Then the scene. In those seconds lives were changed. The car pulled out right in front of the motorcycle. Probably didn’t even see him. Or perhaps the driver of the car was texting. Tired. Talking on his cell phone. Or just not paying attention. Seconds. And lives are changed.
Both my brothers ride motorcycles. Bo is a big biker, as you probably know. I have a lot of friends who ride motorcycles. Seeing this accident, scared me. It affected me to the point that I couldn’t stop crying.
Seconds can change lives.
I write this because witnessing this accident really had a profound affect on me today. It made me think of how short and precious life is. That one might worry about their job. What they are cooking for dinner. Where they need to get their kids off too. A fight they had with a friend.
Life is precious. And Seconds can change lives.
I am praying for all involved in the accident. That the biker is okay. That the driver is okay. And it made me realize, that I too…all too often become distracted when driving. That could’ve been me in the car that hit that biker. It could be any of us.
Seconds can change lives.
Let’s all watch out for bikers (and everyone!) on the roads!
Okay. As a mom, sometimes I like to brag. I know I always joke on the Cornbread Show about my “Vagabond, nature loving” son Leo. Leo also has a creative side to him as well. He absolutely loves music! Over the weekend, he was invovled with the Parkway School District Solo and Ensemble festivales. He was so nervous he couldn’t stop sweating! Well, I got QUITE a shock when he sang because I had no idea he had it in him! So I am sharing my “home video”! Forgive me for bragging, but hey! I AM a proud mama!
What is the secret to being a successful couple? Is it listening? Is it Sharing? Is it doing things together? My mom and dad have been together for years and years and are still happily married and very happy! They have a very DEEP friendship, respect, mutual appreciation for each others talents, and of course, a lot of love!
Having four kids within the span of five years HAD to have a put an enormous strain on their relationship, especially when we were all TEENS! But my folks always stood together, both as parents and partners, and I believe that’s why they have stood the test of time. Through a battle with Ovarian cancer with my mom, to my dad having Heart Disease and bipass surgery, they have always been there for each other…and us!
Do you have a special secret that has kept you with your partner over the years? Please, share it! And in the mean time, here are some great tips from the folks at SHINE YAHOO to help us all out!

It’s been a long, topsy turvy up and down year for me. Been going through a divorce and trying to keep it as amicable as possible for the kids sake (and my own sanity!). But today, as I was heading to yet another Lawyer Meeting, I really wanted my mommy! Are you ever too old to want your mommy? Mine is 1800 miles away in California, but she is just a phone call away and Mah Bell was burning with an hour long conversation to my mom!
