Your life can change in one second.

Yesterday afternoon I was called in to work on my day off. Two of our CNA's got in a wreck while driving in to work. Fortunately, the injuries were minimal and only one will miss a few days of work to recuperate an injured shoulder.

Now, everything changes, for them and us. They have to struggle around getting to and from work and we have to fill in the hole made by the absent employee.

Here's the ironic thing: They were broadsided by a woman who was elderly and (as admitted by her children) probably shouldn't be driving any longer. It would be even more ironic if she ended up staying with us.

Ultimately, it makes me think that there's no point in worrying about tomorrow. You only have this minute. Live in it. The previous minute is gone forever and you may not get to experience the next one.
