Make It Count
It felt like getting engaged with a touch of tragedy.
I know this to be trued because last night she called me and said that her and her husband were reconfiguring their future financial plan and asked about my life insurance. “Husband and I have been planning for our financial future and I know you don’t have a lot of money, but do you have life insurance? If not that’s totally fine, but we would like to take out a policy on you in case we were providing for your children, we would want them to be well taken care of.”
I assured her that I do have life insurance and thanked God that her and her husband are not taking this commitment lightly. They truly are making plans for a future with my children without me, and as much as it hurts to think about, I know that they will be well taken care of.
It’s the doctor appointment you never make because you don’t know if you can handle the bad news and then find out you have stage four cancer because you waited to long. It’s the person you want to reconcile with, but don’t know how to go about it so you just avoid it completely, and then they die. It’s the habit you want to quit, but it seems so hard that you just ignore the potential outcomes of that habit. You never make the change, because you don’t let yourself think about what might happen if you don’t.
