A Life Changing Moment

Posted by: Blue

Three nights ago I had an impaired driving arrest. He blew 230 mg% (.230 for the Americans). He was around three times the legal limit when we arrested him.

On the way to jail, he told us that we had ruined his life and that his marriage was over.

I looked him in the eye and told him I hoped his marriage was strong enough to weather the trouble he had got himself into. Then I told him that he had no one to blame but himself if it wasn't.

He hung his head and started to cry.

My father died on February 17. He had a sudden pulmonary embolism.

It has been a hard month, but would have been much more difficult without loving co-workers, friends and family.

I have been reminded of the beauty in life and the things I have to be grateful for.
