5 years ago

5 years ago the Lord decided to keep me here on earth to become a Mother and continue being a daugther, sister and friend. For this I am so very thankful, because I can actually say that I am one of the lucky ones.

On this day in 2005, I never realized that I would be life flighted to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville due to an accident that would actually change my life forever. I took my seat belt off, a mile before this accident happened, because it was rubbing neck. I now wear my seat belt daily no matter what. My car was split in half by the impact of an suv, and since I was cowardly enough to remove my belt, I was thrown out with the back half of my vehicle. The first half of my vehicle stopped on the left side of the road in a fence, I was on the right laying in a church yard and the back half stayed where the impact took place.

I remember the day like it was yesterday from the words that I said when the impact took place, flying out of my car and wondering if I was still alive, to landing on top of Vandy. The look in the paramedics eyes, the firemen that kept me awake until ems arrived, the women screaming and running because they knew "someone was just killed." I remember the look on my Mother and Sister's face and the tears that they shed standing over the bed.

I had road rash, two black eyes, a few stitches but zero internal injuries.

One thing we didn't know and found out a month later is - I was pregnant and the baby was just fine.

If you do not believe there is a God, this should make you think twice about that.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
