If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Accident

First of all, if you haven't take a look at my earlier post this morning here.  I was talking about what a wonderful morning it was.  Well just a short time after finishing that post.  I received a call from Kelli who had just left for school.

She said "Mom, I slid off the road."

"Are you alright?"

"Yes"

"Where are you?"

"Just down the road."

"Can I walk there?"

She laughed, "Yes."

Sure enough I walked to the end of the drive and there she was about 2 houses down.  We are the 2nd house on our street and she had slid through the stop sign and over into the ditch.  See what I mean?


So I walked down to check things out and then we came back to the house.  I had to figure out what to do.  Remember hubby was already gone on a hospital visit.  So I called work and told them I'd be late and then called the Sheriff's Office for a report and then finally called AAA for a wrecker.  Of course I did call hubby and get input from him as to what to do too.  We walked back to the car and waited for everyone to show up.



Finally they did, and we got the car towed and the report made and unfortunately a ticket written.  I was sure hoping that wouldn't happen.
After everything was over, we walked home and Tracy came in just a short time later.  We let Kelli stay home from school and we took Kerri in and I went to work.  Got there about 11:00am.  One of my bosses came in later with a Bike Officer's Helmet and gave it to me to take home to Kelli and tell her she needed to start wearing this when she was driving.  As you can see, she was willing to model it, but I think if she sees my boss anytime soon his life won't be worth spit.  lol


Kelli's ok, just a small bump and abraision on her forehead and she had a pretty bad headache this afternoon.  But she's feeling better and we ordered in pizza for supper.  So I think she feels a little pampered and she's recovering nicely.

Mom, on the other hand, is exhausted.   I don't like my kids to have accidents.  But God I know you knew what you were doing this morning when you let me have such a relaxing time, because you knew this was going to happen and if I'd already been rushed, I probably would've gone off the deep end.  Thank you for knowing me and what is going to happen to my family and taking care of us Lord.  As I've said before, you are totally amazing and awesome!!

  5. Cathy! Oh my word! I am so glad she is ok physically but I will pray that she will not be gripped with fear. I have had an accident before also with circumstances a bit out of my control and she needs to not over think it. Praise God He does know what He is doing. :) My son and neighbor friend did not ride their bikes to school today and my 11 year old said to me that God must have not allowed him to ride to school today for a reason. :) I love to see FAITH alive and active in my children!!! Hang in there and put a hedge about her to keep fear at bay and Faith in the clear.

  14. So glad Kelli's okay! That's the best news... to hear they're okay!
    Those roads look slick... my driveway was slippery as were some corners I took on the way to work ... everything seemed dry otherwise... who would know!
    Several months after our son, Jason started driving he hit a deer... I'll tell you, it put him on the defensive for a very long time... which is a GOOD THING!
    I feel for you ... and for Kelli!
    God bless you ~ and you deserve another calm morning, Cathy!
    ~take care~

    I realize that she slid through a stop sign but why would they give her a ticket for that? I am confuzzled.

  17. Hey Cathy!

    I'm trying to get caught up with my BGF's (bloggy girlfriends) this morning and am so thankful that Kelli's OK!!! PTL!!

    Having survivied two teeanagers (PTL) and several serious car accidents (one totaled), I completely understand how stressful a phone call like Kelli's was!!! But I'm also thankful that you had some relaxing "me" time earlier that a.m.!!! Wonderful how the Lord orchestrates things isn't it!!!

    Have a blessed weekend!!

    Sweet Blessings!
