Being Grateful

Hi everyone, thought I would share a very emotional period I recently experienced. We sometime take for granted the gift of just being alive until we are close to losing it. Am just very grateful to God for still having my little brother with me today. Remember how many times you tell your love ones goodnight, goodbye, see you later, I will miss you, I’ll call you, please call me when you arrive…! All these words may sound very routine every time we say them because our love ones always seem to be ok afterall. Now imagine if those were actually the last words you said to them just minutes before they are taken away from you! Not too long ago, I almost said my last words but was spared the grieve. Am thankful today that wishing my little brother goodnight in the early hours of one February morning wasn’t going to be my last. We both had a fun night as he helped me cover and event. We had just hugged ourselves goodbye and drove off in separate cars on different routes. Just minutes after goodbyes, a frantic call came into my phone – “…I have been involved in an accident, I need your help brother..!” Hearing those words, my body felt numb. He had just collided with a disabled abandoned car on the highway. Still dark and with no driver nor harzard signal to alert oncoming traffic, my litle brother had no chance to react. Despite his agony of pain and having to deal with studies and work, I am just happy he is alive. It only recently doned on me how close I was to loosing him once I saw him today. Right from a delership to thank me for being there for him and to show me his new ride, it was very emotional for me to actually see him looking and  feeling healthy again. I could not help but be thankful to God for his protection. Its easy how we can easily replace material things, but once a life is snatched from us, there is ofcourse no “delership” to turn to. I just have a deeper appreciation for this very short life of ours. I couldn’t help but take these very significant photos of him just before he left – a soul that was just given a second chance to life! Thanks for reading!

You make a simple environment looking stunning. Now that takes a special eye. Thank God for your brother’s safety. Nice replacement car he got there.
