guardian angels


i know for sure there are guardian angels protecting me and and my family every day but today in particular i felt them super close. i was in my first ever car accident today coming home from getting garret from school. someone pulled right out in front of me and i tried to swerve around her but we still hit. i had all the kids in the car, raelyn got really scared and was screaming but everyone ended up being fine. there was someone right behind me and he stopped. i asked him if he could stay until i got my thoughts together and the police got there. he offered to put the kids in his warm truck. he even had a carseat in there so i strapped brenna in and all the kids stayed warm. he was such a nice guy. we didnt talk much but he stayed right next to me in the freezing cold until a friend could come and get the kids. soon after she came the police finally got there and then just a few minutes after that dave got there. it seemed like an eternity until i saw him. he was so calm and caring. he is the best thing that ever happened to me. other than my stomach being in knots i really felt fine. the air bags did not go off so that was a good thing, but the van had to be towed and is probably totaled. we will find that out tomorrow. God is good and was a part of eveything that happened today. dave was all the way out at the camp so it took him awhile to get into town, but it took the police so long to get there, the timing was just right. the kids were all perfect, the man who stayed with me and kept the kids warm in his truck, the police officer was super nice and down to earth, carrie my good friend came and got the kids and another friend picked up a pizza and brought it over to us for dinner. i am blessed even through bad circumstances. God is good to me and i am so thankful.

So thankful you and the kids are fine! What a blessing to have Good Samaritans to step in and help however they can in your time of need. God is good and most definately protects us. Praying the car isn't totaled~
