As I sit back and wonder how I can present different content to the blog, I felt led to share this moment with you all. It’s a bit more on the personal side and I was hopeful that you would all like to “Get to Know Me” as I share “The Time I Almost Lost My Life.” Before I begin, let me first recognize all the mother’s out there and I hope you had an enjoyable Mother’s Day.
Last night I had a close encounter with life and death. My day started off with a Mother’s Day Luncheon at the church I attend, Chapel of Prayer. It was a spectacular event with great people, where we had the opportunity to honor Mother’s, fellowship with one another and enjoy great food. I couldn’t imagine my day not ending on a high note until that fateful moment. As I started to end my day with a wonderful hot shower, I felt like I was being watched. I’ve only heard of peeping tom stories in movies and such, so never did I think it could happen to me. And there he was, staring at me, hoping not to get caught! While he quickly scurried away, I screamed and thought to myself, “my, that lizard is fast!”
I quickly got out from the shower as I kept my eyes on the lizard, hoping to not lose it so it wouldn’t continue to torment me. My goal was to face my fear and get rid of it….or at least out from my bathroom. The lizard made a mad dash towards my hamper and I quickly tried to shake it out from my clothes, and before I know it, I flinged it towards my bathroom counter and into my makeup organizer station. If I could have just died right there…
Of all the places it could’ve landed, NOT MY MAKEUP LORD! I gathered all the strength I had in me and tried to locate this lizard once again. And then there it was, inside of my makeup brush holder. After a couple of screams, teary-eyed and grief-stricken, I was able to remove all of the brushes in the holder and contain the lizard inside until I did a quick jog to the door. As soon I got outside, I threw down the brush holder in hopes the lizard would escape. At this point my brother is pulling up in the driveway and I’m screaming to him about my life threatening moment. In a stifled laugh, he says, “the lizard is more afraid of you then you are of him.” Foolish talk! He retrieves my brush holder to ensure the lizard has indeed escaped before handing it back to me. It was such a relief to survive this terrifying moment.
I am so glad that I am here to share my story. Hopefully, you were able to find the humor in this, the same way that I did. The story really did happen as I mentioned it. I was truly devastated. But why not share such a moment and just get personal. I do want to include more personal content on the blog, where I can share my experiences, in hopes that it helps and motivates someone or at least provide some laughter. If there is any topic you would like for me to discuss, leave a comment below and we can go from there. Let’s start this week off right and make it a great one!
