Day 7: I'm Afraid

As always, I'm linking up with Jenni for these Blog Everyday in May posts. Today's prompt is to talk about the things I'm most afraid of...

I'm afraid of a lot of things. Some of those things are silly; like spiders and flying insects. Some might even see my fear of drowning as silly. I was a varsity swimmer and water polo player in high school. I know how to safety float for as long as necessary and escape a Rip Tide. I don't do the ocean, I will wade until the water gets about knee high, but that's it.

A lot of of my fears are real.

I am afraid of dying, even though God has already picked my time and there is obviously nothing I can do to change that.

I am afraid of Joshua getting hurt or dying at work (in the future), he is currently in school to get his AS in Fire Technology and plans on becoming a Firefighter. I am afraid that if that were to happen, I wouldn't be able to keep it together for my kids. I know it's rare, but it's a reality. I don't want to have to tell my kids that their dad isn't coming home.

I am afraid of getting into a car accident with children in the car. After my accident last June, this one is always at the forefront of my mind, especially if I'm driving during work hours.

I am afraid of losing any my family or friends unexpectedly. I can handle the knowledge that someone is very sick and isn't going live for much longer. I can come to terms with that. It's happened before. But unexpectedly? I don't think I'd handle that well.

What are you afraid of?

I also have this thing about dying, I know it's going to happen. But the thought just scares me :/

I found your blog via SOML.

I am also afraid of getting into a car accident. I don't go anywhere unless I have to. I'm not a shut in, obviously, but if I have to choice of going somewhere or staying in, I will almost always choose to stay in.:)
