I hate to say this out loud. Upon hearing Rush Limbaugh was in the hospital and his condition serious, I felt a nervous twinge in my stomach. Dare I say it, I thought, "Oh my gosh, what if Rush was gone". I could not help but think of the shocking passing of Michael Jackson. The next morning, I timidly turned on my TV. "Praise God!", Rush is resting comfortably.
I had the same fearful feeling in my stomach once before years ago. My wife passed out after dinner as we were leaving a restaurant. She awoke and was fine. During the time she was unconscious, the thought of life without her overwhelmed me with fear. The incident gave me a whole new appreciation of her and our relationship.
This incident with Rush makes me feel the same way. I am sure when Rush started his career, he simply wanted to earn a living doing what he loves to do. Rush had no idea he would grow to mean so much to millions and his country. Rush Limbaugh has become bigger than Rush Limbaugh.
Rush, please take care of yourself. We (America) love and need you! God bless.
