We are so small.
Seeing footage of the Japan tsunami on the news is giving me panic attacks.
I’m horrified, and heartbroken for these people.
More than that, it scares me to be reminded of how powerless we are. We are such tiny creatures compared to the awe striking power of Mother Nature.
And my babies, I always think of them. To lose them, to see them suffer, for me to die and leave them before they are ready. It terrifies me. I want to hold them close and never, ever let them go. Yet holding them won’t protect them–that is the most terrifying part. Even a mother’s love can’t protect them from natural disasters, or accidents, or illness, or suffering. Or death.
I suppose it should be just another reminder to enjoy life to the max, be present in each moment.
But still. I still worry for them.
I love them so much.
