Hi everyone, I have so missed hearing from you the last few days.
Things have been hectic and nerve racking today. I got a call last night at 12:35, never a good sign, saying that my mom had been in a car accident. She had passed out behind the wheel as she was driving to her sister's house last night and hit a parked car. She totaled her car. When I heard this I was sure she was in bad shape. Luckily and by the grace of God she only suffered lots of bruises from her seat belt and the airbags. When I spoke to her she sounded like how you would expect, sore! She is resting at home today and starting her recovery, but it could have been much worse. I am so thankful it wasn't!!!
This has been such a tough couple of years for my mom, first she had cancer, then she had to have spinal surgery which she still hasn't recovered from.
It's strange how life can change in an instant, and it had me recalling the night 3 years ago when my husband didn't come home until 2 in the morning one night and almost died. And even though its been 3 years, I still get frantic when he's late coming home from work or I don't hear from him. This happened tonight and I was beside myself with worry. His phone ended up dying before he could call, but all I could do was think of that horrible night 3 years ago.
They are lucky, my husband and my mom, but some aren't so lucky.
So hug your loved ones today and make sure they know how much you love them, life can change in an instant!
