What Happened Today That Made Me Grateful for Life

Thank you @sanibelsprout for the reminder: ¨The best thing for being sad,¨ replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, ¨is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails.¨ What I learnt today was a deeper level of humility to the fact that we’ll never know when our time is up. My husband was meters away from the attack site at Drottninggatan in April. Today, I was meters away from where another truck had just crashed into cars on Söder, Stockholms southside. As I strangely marked myself safe, just in case, I noticed not fear for my own life, but wanted to make sure that my kids and husband would know where I was and that I was thinking about them. I learnt that our every-days are our most precious. Our huge experiences in life are special but the day-to-day itself is so magical. That we get to wake up again, with all our faculties, and kissed our loved ones. Again. Humbled and grateful I carry on with a usual Tuesday.
