Marriage Gratitude 20: Close Calls

by | Everyday, Firefighter Marriage


Close calls. 

They can happen to anyone, at any time, in any place.  

Firefighters are dispatched to calls with all sorts of possible dangers and spouses spend so much time alone, things can feel scary.  We have to be thankful for those almost moments where life could have been changed drastically in a moment.  

No matter if it was a too close for comfort incident on the fire ground or if your spouse was in a near accident or situation that could have been dangerous.  As a women who often travels solo, I can think of a few times that could have ended up with an ending no one wants, BUT they didn’t.  

So much thanks for those moments that are just “almosts”.

Today I am thankful for those close calls that were only that.  I am grateful for the strength we have as a couple to stand strong during these scary moments, finding true gratitude and moving on standing tall.
