Have you ever met someone that has the ability to make you feel like the luckiest person in the world one minute and then drive you completely and utterly insane the next, but you love them anyway?

Meet Zach. My amazing little four year old who pretty much has me wrapped around his fingers. I would do absolutely anything for this kid but what would happen if I wasn’t able to give him my all because life can be completely unpredictable? Reading articles on Protective Life really opened my eyes to needing to feel more secure about my plans for the future and more importantly, my loved ones.

I honestly rely on Zach to get me through my day not matter how difficult he can be sometimes, he always finds a way to make me so happy and make me laugh so hard, even when I feel like crying. Even though he’s only been in my life for the past 5 years, he’s had a huge impact on me– through his drool on my shirt, his farts on my face at night, his cute little stick figure drawings of us, and everything in between– I know that he will always be there teaching me new things about myself and I can only hope I can guide him in this world as best as I can.

When I was watching the Holderness Family’s music video about “Why I Can’t Live Without You” it honestly made me laugh so hard because everything about it was so true, even though they were trying to talk about a serious topic in a light-hearted way. (We realize this video in a way does poke fun at what a spouse does but they focus on sharing the workload as a couple. This is a delicate matter and we don't want to offend anyone.) It helped me think more about my relationship with Zach and I honestly can’t live without him because who’s going to eat all of my snacks while I’m at school or kick me off the bed while sleeping next to me?

In all honesty, I never really thought much about life insurance until reading more articles on the Protective Life website and I realized that it’s not even as expensive as I thought it would be– something I know a lot of people think about at first with regards to life insurance. If something happened to me, I would want my family, namely my son, to be able to have a comfortable financial stability and carry out his needs without me if he had to. It’s really an important matter for families to consider in the reality of an unexpected situation.
