It’s Saturday afternoon and we’re driving Highway 83, along the Mexican border. We’ve just left Ryan’s first swimming meet and are heading for his soccer match 45 miles away.
Suddenly, we hear an unrecognizable POP! It’s so loud! Our car begins to roll over and over. Then, we are trapped in our car, on fire.
Everything in me wants to get out of the fire. The other everything in me wants to get the kids out of the fire.
My maternal instincts are raging! So are my primal instincts.
It’s like an internal civil war: “Do I save my children, or do I save myself?”
(So I’ll see you on Monday.)
