Heart Stopping Moments.
Not the kind of moments that I enjoy especially when they come in the form of
danger to someone that I love. Only now have I been able to think on this
without my hands quivering and knees getting weak.....yesterday this was what I
saw, my 6(almost7) year old screaming my name in the water where she is fiercely attempting to keep her head above the water. I had literally turned my back for one minute playing in the water with Ezra while Kez and Noah drifted in the tube they were on and tipped where Kez couldn't touch...I heard her screaming "MOM" and turned to barely see her face above the water. Then running through the water to her seemed an awful lot like running through molasses, S L O W M O T I O N .....I got to her just before she went under and scooped her up in my arms and squeezed her so tight. As she was curled up in my arms she muttered bottom lip shivering ' I..I...I aaallmmooosst drowned mommy'. With tears in both our eyes and my heart beating a million beats a second I just hugged and kissed her and thanked God for protection and the fact that I happened to be in the water close by. No matter what a natural she is in the water all it took was a moment where she was caught off guard to change it all......thank the Lord for happy endings.....sigh....okay I can breathe now!!
Tomorrow we'll be heading home from an otherwise awesome week at the lake, I'll post some pics when I get there. Have a safe and happy weekend!!!
