Times of Tranquility

Day eight and I’m still remembering to post. Will wonders never cease?

Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt is: Has anything traumatic ever happened to you? Describe the scenes surrounding a particular event.

I gave this a pretty good think when I saw the prompt this morning. A few things came to mind: giving birth, when my husband was laid off, a friend getting lost in the woods and dying when I was very young (read about Andy here). The more I thought about it, the more I came to realize that I have had a very lucky and very safe life.  Believe me, I am exceptionally thankful for that. I can only hope my life continues to be so charmed, and to do my best to shepherd the little man through life in such a way so that he is challenged but never in danger.
