Rosie O’Donnell’s Heart Attack is Scary August 22, 2012
Rosie O’Donnell had a heart attack—did you hear? That scares me, just like it scares me when I hear about someone who has had a serious car accident or someone who has fallen victim to a crazy disease. It makes me realize I could be next in line for an unexpected, life-changing blow, and for a while, I let this realization motivate me to truly appreciate my every moment. Granted, I usually fall back into the habit of taking for granted all the good in my life, but for a bit, I cherish—really cherish—my blessings, which are most definitely my family members. The first people I latch onto during moments of panic about how something bad could happen to me at any time are my kids. How about you—what do you most appreciate when it sinks in that none of us in invincible?
