And then there was the phone call. The much needed one. God knew I needed to hear from our son. Remember, he is in Alaska. This mother has imagined all kinds of conflicts going on. I was more than awake when I heard the sound of his voice. I screamed in the phone. He told me to calm down! The nerve! He said, "guess where we are?" Oh boy. That just means he is on some adventure somewhere. And indeed, he was. He and his buddy decided it would be fun to go hiking "up some mountain range." They got a few days off and decided to go explore. So, for two nights, they hiked and enjoyed the scenery. Living life. He was thrilled to try to describe where they were. He was awake.
I was too...the rest of the night! Before getting off the SAT phone, he told us that he could count 3 grizzly bear not far from him. "They don't care about us mom." I sat up lots during the night praying, just to make sure!
I came across this story about a man who is living his life. However long he may have, he is WIDE AWAKE. Click on it! It will make you think.
What are you seeing in your daily life that makes you say, "I am WIDE AWAKE."
