Just Rolling In From My 5 am. Spin Class...
I had to share with you all a story I heard on the radio- driving home this early winter morning.
This story is about a couple, the Munch's I think the name was, married 30 years- 7 children together. They decided to take a trip around the world that would take them almost 2 years. While at sea not long ago, they stood out on the bow of the boat looking at the horizon when the husband noticed a white "wall" of sorts stretched across the horizon that seemed to be increasing in size...extending from one side of the horizon to the other. As the wall came closer a boat in it's path exploded! They both rushed to a life boat but quickly realized there was no way they could get out and to safety in the husband looked at his wife and said, "Whatever happens Don't Let Go!"...And that she did...the couple was literally thrown from one side of the island to the other, the wife losing consciousness 2 or 3 times. The husband thinking at one point how sad he was for their 7 children! He continued to yell to his wife to "wake up"..."Hold on- I'm not ready to loose you). At the conclusion of this hellish ordeal remnants of a boat were nearby, as bodies were thrown from one end of the waters to the other. The two were able to come aboard for air and safety from the water. As the wife finally came to consciousness the husband wept...and wept!! After going through all they had in their lives together, 30 years of marriage, 7 children...and all that goes with that!! Then amazing story of survival and love!
I hope you all have a great day today-
I hope this gives you a bit of perspective!
