in an instant

The phone call went like this:
"Did you hear what happened? Cathy got hurt in the softball game tonight. They're on the way to the emergency room now. Please pray!"

I suppose parents brace themselves for the possibility of such news. As a friend, after just seeing Cathy yesterday, it's a challenge to go from what I knew yesterday, to this unexpected news today.

She's okay. She's at the hospital and I just rec'd word she's improving and doing pretty well.

But it still shakes one a bit.

This life, and our interactions and relationships with others are certainly not predictable. It is precious. It is a gift to be cherished and embraced daily!

Pix: Cathy, in one of her wonderfully silly and spontaneous moves.
