Phone Call

Twelve days ago I got one of those phone calls no one likes to get.  One telling me that my cousin & her girls were in a car accident...a pretty serious car accident.  When I heard the words "car accident" and "life flight" I started to cry.  Thankfully, Tim & Addy were with me and able to keep me calm.  See, no one thinks good thoughts when they hear those words when spoken about their family.
Now I can honestly say everything will be okay.  Cyndy and her girls are out of the  hospital and while they will still be dealing with the aftermath of the car accident for awhile, they will all be okay. If there is one thing Cyndy's accident did for me, it reminded me how important family is and how lucky we are to have each other.   We are so very lucky to have each other to help us when times are rough, when we need a little help, or even just need someone to hang out with. And if you need a family that does that for you, just let me know and you can be part of ours cause another awesome thing about my family, they are accepting of anyone and will welcome you with loving arms.
 Cyndy, we love you and I am so very thankful to have you, Josh, & your girls in my life!!
