beckyg Posted September 29, 2003 Share Posted September 29, 2003 When I took Katie to school this morning, there was a note posted on the door that said there was a fatal accident on Highway 21 outside of town this weekend, and the mother and grandmother of twin 3 year old boys in Katie's class were killed. Their 12 month old sister was hospitalized but will be okay. The boys and their 5 year old brother were at home. It has never really impacted me to think that I could be hit by a car at anytime--that doesn't change the fact that I am fighting lung cancer every day when by rights I ought to be thinking about having another baby and enjoying my life in general. But this morning I read that and then got back in the car and cried all the way to work. I just kept thinking about those 4 children and their father--at least if lung cancer takes me out I will have had time to help Curtis plan for Katie. Prepare is definitely not the right word--Curtis and Katie will never be prepared, but they will at least have some warning. Becky Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
