hospitals, emergency rooms & breathing

i had quite the scare last friday night ... but so thankful for the timing ...

i was taking some medication for an ear infection, (which we found out i didn't actually have ... after the fact), mom and dad just arrived home from out of town and i took a dose of this medication ... within 10 minutes my throat had closed up and i couldn't breathe ... i honestly thought i was going to die.  well we ended up in the emergency room, sat for about 2 hours, by the time we left i was fine, just tired and had a swollen face, tongue & hands!  so yes i will take the wise words from matt ... "don't take that medication again!"  

i was so very thankful though because the other 2 times i took the medication i was home alone and i don't know what would have happened in that case.  God obviously had his hand in my life last friday!  he is definitely taking care of me!  

i learned through all this ... well ... i can't take my breath for granted.  life as well ... no one is promised tomorrow.  i need to start living in the moment!  

"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."   Matthew 6:33-34

there is a plan for my life ... not sure what exactly yet.  but i know i'm here because i need to be a light in this darkened world.  

how bout you?!  gonna join me in lightening up the darkness and living in the moment?!  ... i hope so!
