YOU NEVER KNOW...

Last night I had the chance to hang out with my good friend Erika! We attended a seminar at SCAD that included Eddie Ross and Jaithan as two of the guest speakers. After the event, Erika and I decided to have a night cap (sprite for me and coke for her!) and discuss what we got from the conversation. Did I mention the topic was "The Rise of the Blog"?! We laughed, questioned each other, and pointed out a few good notes that we took with us from the event.

After we said our "see you laters", we were headed home each on our own paths. After being lost for about 30 minutes, Erika guided me in the right direction so I could be on my way home (for real this time!).

Well, as luck would have it, I didn't make it home until about 4:00am. I was in an accident shortly after turning off my exit from the highway.





There were no serious injuries other than a few burns from the airbags, but I couldn't help but think about my last moments prior to the accident:

A fun time with friends

A call home to my husband to tell him that I was lost, but on my way and that I love him (he was sleeping)

and before leaving home, my boys asking me why I don't dress "pretty" when I'm with them!

If the accident would have been worse, I must admit that I couldn't have asked for a better last time with them...

I am a little sore today so I won't be doing my usual "blog hopping". But, I will make sure I catch up later. And if these are my last words to you, I want you to know that I enjoy hearing from and talking to each and every one of you!

Take care and have a safe weekend!

My heart dropped when you called me, even with a shaken voice it was still comforting to hear your speak. I replayed the moments prior,looked at the photos we took, and thanked God for your life. We enjoy talking to you too and look forward to chatting/tweeting it up with you...here's a big 'ole hug!

Lakeitha, I'm glad that you're ok, but when you when you look back over things, you can't help but be thankful. That's why I live each day as if it's my last. Thanks for this post, it made me think that I really should tell my family I love them more often.

Ok so I just remembered I was following tons of folk and was doing some Saturday reading...OMGosh! God is good, and I am glad you are ok, even if I don't know you personally.

Next, how about I went to a major event lately and told them about blogging and sponsoring blogs, and they laughed in my face?

Well joke is on them, because they have no clue what is to come..I would love to know what was said.

Be safe and love those Duncan Boys!
