car wreck and thankfulness

 Yesterday, the kids were with my mother-in-law.  They were in our van at a complete stop when they were rear-ended.  It ended up being a 5 car wreck.  THANKFULLY, my babes and Lynn have nothing more to show for it than a few scrapes from seat belts and straps from car seats and some whiplash pain.  I have been sending up thankful whispers of prayer to the Lord all day for keeping my family safe yesterday.  This could have been so much worse!  I have my babies home with me and they sustained no major injuries.



Needless to say, we won't be bringing that van back home ever.  It's gone.  Thankfully, James is no longer going to Ocala so we will have the Camry to get us around for the time being!
I sit at the table and watch my children eat their supper 
and my heart swells with how blessed we are!

Thank You,Jesus!!!!!
I am so grateful they are okay!!!
We went through a similar experience when Dick's truck was totaled in May and he walked away with just a sore elbow. I know that feeling of overwhelming thankfulness every time you look into their face - the joy of being with them and they are okay.
