Good Friday mornin' to ya'!
I was out yesterday... Tim's (my hubby) brother David and his wife were in a very serious car accident. It's amazing they survived! And this time... no seat belt was a good thing!
David pulled into an intersection with a hill and a truck (carrying cars) popped over the hill doing 70mph and plowed into the side of them. David has 3 fractured ribs, 3 fractured vertebrae in his neck and is (understandably) so very sore all over. He had surgery Wed. on his neck and it went well no paralysis! Praise the Lord! Beth is wife has suffered a head injury and has 12 staples in her head but has been released from the hospital. She has serious road rash on her shoulder where she was hanging sideways out of the car and drug along the road! Now go back and read that again and then praise the LORD! She said she yelled David's name and when he answered her she said the only thing she could think to do is get on her knees and she started praying. The 1st person on the scene came up to her and she asked him are you a christian man and he said I'm a preacher! He ran to his car grabbed a towel prayed over it and laid it on her head to help the bleeding and started reading from the bible. He started with the Lord is my shepard and Beth stopped him and said NO! They read that one at funerals and the Lord said I'm not going home yet! WOW WOW WOW! She said she has no pain in her head! She said the pain she feels is in her shoulder! Well I say YEP, that's proves it again there is a God! He reveals Himself to us daily! Do be in prayer for the family they have two kids who were w/ Grandma at the time (again Praise the Lord)! They are missing mommy and daddy very much. Haven't been away from each other for more than a day! David is still in ICU and was talking a little yesterday. They were hoping to stand him up and do some more xrays of his spine this time to make sure everything in his back lines up. Both of them recently (w/in the past year) gave their lives to the Lord. This accident could have had a much different outcome! Scary to think!
Tim and I did have a very blessed day together even though we had to go to a hospt. We really enjoyed each others time and company. We went to the pool last evening with Tucker and Tim and I were swimming around and kissing and hugging and Tucker was totally grossing out! I LOVE IT! It totally cracked me up and it was one of those moments in time that you knew would freeze in your brain forever and when everything felt right in the world. I love those moments and cherish those times because they come few and far between.
We are going to the comedy club tonight w/ a couple of other couples. Tim got free tickets. That ought to be a good time and I am looking forward to it!
Tomorrow I have relay for life walk and a last minute baby shower that I want to pop in at. Other than that a peaceful weekend is planned! YEAH! Hoping you have lots of sunshine and good times. I pray for each of you that cross this blog and I pray for my friends who have connected to me through this site I pray God blesses you abundantly not with things but with health, peace, family and friends!! God bless you all!

I will be in prayer for your brother and sister in law. I am so glad that they were protected throughout the ordeal.

I'm glad that despite all you had to go through, you were able to have a relaxing, restful evening. It's very good for children to see their parents interact in a loving way. Tucker might have been saying "gross" ;) but he was being built up by the strenthening of your bond with Tim.

Speaking of kids.....

Here's a funny one: Last night my sister in law came to take the kids to the beach. They were to go home with her and spend the night. Robert's mom was there, and she wanted to spend some time with them.

So, Robert and I were without kids for the night! Woo-hoo! That hasn't happened in ages! We went out to dinner, (El Dorados): I had a nice strawberry daqueri, we came home and things got a little....fun. Clothes were tossed aside with abandon, and we weren't concerned....no kids! We'd pick the wayward garmets up in the morning and they'd be none the wiser! Usually...things are restricted to the locked bedroom, but not last night! No kids! We had the whole house to ourselves! Shirts on the couch, undies in the living room floor! (you get the idea) HAHAHA!

Guess what? Jo got homesick and insisted on Kay bringing him home. At eleven o'clock, we were relaxing in the buff and we hear the key in the door! Jess decided that since Jo was coming home, she would, too. Talk about jumping up and scrambling around like crazy people! OMG! What a disaster that almost was! hahahaha!

Did you laugh? Now, try to get this image out of your head. YOU might have to have a drink to erase that picture! HAHAHAHA! TMI, right? ;)

Have a good Friday! May your clothes end up on the ceiling fan someday real soon. ;) It's liberating. teehee.
