safety net

When you're young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don't leap at all because there's not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there's no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?

Today on my way to work, I heard this advertisement for OnStar road protection...the woman in the ad had driven into the river (hey, who hasn't?). As the waters swirled around said helpless woman, a calm voice came over the speakers, "Don't worry, 'mam. Help is on the way!" Wow. Wouldn't it be fabulous to have this kind of safety net around us whenever emergency strikes? Even for the little things...those panic moments in life where we forgot to do something or are late, "Don't worry, 'mam. Help is on the way."
In reality, there are no safety nets...however, we can be there for each other. Think about all the times you have needed a friend who has reach out and went the extra mile, when you have listen to someone sort out a major decision without adding your two cents, or when you have sat up with a small child through the night. We can be each other's "OnStar"...on the road of life we never travel alone. Have a great week, and remember to reach out to those around well as to receive love as you journey!

P.S. To all my girlfriends, make sure you mark your calendars and purchase your tickets for the new Sex and the City 2 movie...opening this Thursday.
