Last night on our way home from church we were in a fender bender (my fault, blah). Everyone was fine and there was minimum damage, so that alone I am so thankful! I don't even think the kids realized what had happened until I quickly pulled over and turned off their DVD. Anyway, long story short the police came and did a report. I got cited (yay) and we finally made it home a whole hour and half after the initial incident. Of course with any fender bender you replay the whole thing in your head over and over. ugh. I hate that. This morning before I had gotten the kids breakfast Ryan already called the insurance company and all should be fine. Our deductible is low (praise the Lord!). I hate how incidents like this make us think of all we should be thankful for, but I like to think that even when things are going good I'm thankful for everything I have going in my life. For one, I'm thankful last night is done and over with. LOL I'm thankful my kids are okay!!!!! I still hate that they were in the car with me during that, but ugh...if I think about the what ifs I will go nuts! I am thankful to still have a driveable vehicle! I can still get things done on a daily basis. I'm thankful for going to church and teaching my girls about Jesus. They always look forward to Wednesday night church. I could easily say "If only we didn't go to church last night this wouldn't have happened" but I don't feel like that at all. I had a great time at the homeschool support group and my girls had a great time in their respective classes. The Lord will work through this and all will be great in the end.
If I really wanted to nit pick, I would say now that this has happened I was thankful to have a dent-free truck. :-p But I'm not complaining at all!
