Have you ever been scared for your life? Legitimately, scared that you couldn’t get out of the situation and you didn’t know how it would turn out? Well I can say I have now. It’s crazy how those situations make you take a long, hard look at life and what it’s about. This past weekend I was attacked by a swarm of hundreds or thousands of killer bees….sure felt like thousands of those darn things! I have never been through such an awful fight and struggle. Thankfully I was able to call my family and get an ambulance to me so it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. It didn’t stop me from being at work Monday morning, but the lawn mowing is another story. Maybe I’ll leave that to another professional for a little while.
In my life I’ve been through some crazy crashes, a few fights-nothing I will brag about, stresses of family and owning a business but nothing compared to this feeling. After my foot surgery, the recovery time and then this- it makes you slow down and think about what is important in life. The shop is where I spend 95% of my time and I am so glad I have a profession of doing something I love. I get to wake up, go to work, and see all of these awesome cars. Each one of them is a new challenge about how to make something work or why it’s working however it is….and doing a few burnouts in the mean time! (Kristin put the video on our Facebook and YouTube)
Speaking of burnouts and having fun…we purchased a new toy, a flying drone with a camera attached. Now we promise not to drive it, well actually fly it, over people’s houses like those crazies you hear about on the news! Kristin, Alex and I are really excited to get some awesome videos from a whole new perspective to show y’all. Wait…have I introduced Alex yet? He is a new front counter genius that we’ve hired. You will probably speak with him when you call the shop. He’s just like us so don’t worry about throwing those crazy questions at him, and BELIEVE ME we sure get some crazy questions!! So be sure to take a look at our Facebook regularly and even our YouTube channel to see all the cool new videos that the guys up front are posting. Comment or share a few and let us know how we are doing.
Well I think that is all I have for now. Remember to never take life too seriously and think about the real meaning of it because you NEVER know when a crazy bee swarm will come out of nowhere and attack you!!!!
“Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” – James 4:13-15
