Two Lives

Was life really worth it?  He’d had lost so much in the past year.  Within months of each other, he’d lost his wife and daughter.  Then, he lost his job.  So, here, he was without a family and a job.  Was life really worth it?  No.  It wasn’t. 

Resolute, he started towards the foamy waters when he heard a scream and saw a person flailing about.  He dashed into the sea and minutes later, he was pulling a woman to shore.  They collapsed onto the sand.

“Thank you,” she gasped.  “You saved my life.”

And God saved mine, he realized.
