Day 10--What are you afraid of?

I would have to say that my biggest fear right now is something bad happening to my girls. I just don't want to think about the possibility of ever losing them, and it scares me to death. Like I could be on medication if I sit and think about it long enough.

I know that I can't protect them from ALL of the dangers of this world, and that I do have to let them have freedom at some point, but I want to keep them safe forever. And then I think about all of the things that could happen that I can't keep them safe from, like sickness and disease. It's more than my mind can handle.

So, I try not to let my mind go there too often! ANd that's when I go in for the extra snuggles and kisses and prayers!

**On a side note, how many of you moms have wills already made? I was thinking about this after I left the movie Life As We Know It on Sunday (a complete cry fest by the way). I am thinking that Mike and I need to get one in place, just in case!

Josh and I both have wills, living wills, and advance directive's. As well as considerable life insurance policies. It sucks to have to think about those things, but it has to be done.

My husband and I need to make our wills - it's something we discussed for a while now. We have life insurance, but need to file the appropriate paperwork to protect our kids.

I am so with you on this one. I've even asked God that if it comes down to it, if someone needs to go, PLEASE let it be me. I also ask the Lord to protect them from anything I might do on accident; I can't think of anything worse than ME being the one responsible for one of them getting hurt.
Scary stuff!
