Wordfull Wednesday - My Worst Fear
The topic this week for Wordfull Wednesday by Chocolate on my Cranium is My worst fear. At first I couldn't really think of anything as I don't really have any paralyzing fears.
I mean bugs and spiders and snakes are icky...and I ain't gonna pick any up anytime soon... but I'm not deathly afraid of them. I am a little scared of heights but musn't be too much as I thouroughly enjoyed a Hot air balloon flight I took last Christmas. Go to my travelblog to see the photos and details I am scared when my children who are wiggly, iquisitive and daring look over high ledges.. that gives me the heeby geebies and I am know to hold on to the backs of their shirt/pants often which they hate. Scared of heights? Tick that one off
I was scared of the dark as a child and don't particularly like being in the middle of nowhere in the dark but for day to day living and in my home I am not scared. Before I had kids when I was single, driving my car home late at night - I really did not like driving down dark isolated roads.... just waiting for a UFO or crazy ax murdered to come and get me :) that is one thing that still creeps me out big time, but it is very rare these days for me to be driving places like that alone.
So after listing all my quasi-fears :) I would say my biggest fear would be dying.
Myself, my husband or my kids. The few times they have been really sick or the few times they were lost.. my throat and breath siezes up and I think that I could not bear life without them. This topic is a good one as this week I have been reading "Tuesdays with Morrie" by Mitch Albom. This has opened my eyes and feelings towards being able to deal with death. Morrie mentions often that our society is not used to dealing with this - that we often go around acting like death will never happen. But it does and can. When we admit to the reality of death - then we can live. The book is full of many great pearls of wisdom - I might have to blog about is seperately!
