Saying I Love You

Our morning routine has not changed even with me at home now. Jules wakes up at 4:00 a.m. and get really for work. He wakes me at 5:30 a.m. and I dress and throw water on my face. We get into the car and I drive him to work. First we stop and pick the paper and a coffee. I keep the car because I need it during the day.

We arrived at his workplace and he, as always leans over and kisses me and tells me to have a nice day,to drive safely and that he loves me. I joke to him and say the same even the drive safely part because he drives a walkie...remember I still think like a Health & Safety Specialist even though I no longer am one.

Jules tells me this afternoon after work , that an employee was seen in his car in the parking lot after I left him off with a shot gun and ammo. Two other employees managed to convince him to get out of the car and leave the rifle alone. The police were call. Was this employee so depressed that he was going to shoot himself or was he planning to take his co-workers down with him? If the two employees didn't convince the man to get of his car, the employee could have gone into the building, directly into the cafeteria and blown away my husband and his co -workers.

Each day is a new day and we do not know what it will bring us...therefore say "I love you" to the ones you love as it could be the last time.
