My husband saves lives almost every day as a firefighter. To him, it’s a job. It’s a job he loves, but a job nonetheless. Sometimes, no matter how hard the guys try, they can’t save everyone. Just recently, a girl was pinned inside her car on the side of the interstate after being hit by a drunk driver. She was talking and didn’t seem to be in a lot of pain. The firemen cut her out only to see her take her last breath immediately after. She was only 21. To hear my husband share stories like these is heartbreaking. Heartbreaking and beautiful… because he works hard to save the lives of people he doesn’t know. And for that, I am thankful.
