Thankful !!!!

The start of this week was not a good one and it was one of those days when you just wish you had a magic remote control for life and could go back and rewind the day, but......when it was all said and done I was so thankful for God's protection on us. Here's what happened....

Monday morning started off as usual; I left the house around 7:30, kissed Josh goodbye and was off to work. He usually leaves around 8ish, but by that time I'm already at work going over patent's lab work,etc. phone rang around 8:15 and Josh says "Don't be mad, but I just crashed my car. I'm ok, but my car is pretty bad." Of course I was panicked and went to get him. He hydroplaned during pouring down rain on Hwy 121 just a little way from our house. He spun and hit the cement barrier between the north/southbound lanes then bounced off and the back of his car hit a metal guardrail. Thank the Lord no other cars were involved. And, other than a slightly sore L shoulder, Josh is just fine.

We got the SUV toed, got Josh a rental and we are still waiting to hear back from the insurance on if its going to be a total loss of repairable.

But...all of that to say, that I am so thankful Josh is ok. Every morning I pray for God's protection for him, me and Morgan. I can't imagine life without Josh and its even scarier now that Morgan is almost here. Accidents happen, I know, but thankfully we were blessed to only have a banged up car.

Josh and I were both a little shaken up thinking about the fact that a few months from now Morgan could have been in the backseat, but, THANKFULLY, she wasn't! I know he'll be even more careful from now on!

Thank you Jesus for protecting him and keeping him safe for me and his baby girl!!!!!

I am so glad everything is ok. It is funny how you start to think about things differently when a baby enters the picture. Once Morgan is here, I'll bet you start to think that everyone around you drives way too fast. Don't they know you've got a baby in the car???

Hope he's feeling ok!
