Praise God.

My husband was in car wreck yesterday afternoon. He is fine. He was on the way to school to pick up the babies, and ironically I was on the phone with him. It was raining pretty bad, and he tried to switch lanes, in doing so lost control and started to fishtail across the road. He crashed into a tree sideways on the drivers side, and after seeing his truck I am still in shock that he was not hurt. 

When I got to him, and saw his truck I lost it. It hit me the thought of loosing the man I love, the father of my babies, and the rock of our entire family. 

Why do these things have to have to happen to make us realize whats important in life? Last night at dinner it hit me again. Todd was still at the office finishing some things up and on the phone with the insurance company. He is always home by 5 and we always eat dinner together the 4 of us. Well understandably he wasn't home yet. I looked at both my babies, then I looked at the empty chair and thought I could have lost that man today. My babies could have lost the man that makes their world go around. I couldn't hold back the tears at the thought of this. 

Right now as I type this I can hear from downstairs the laughter of my kids as their daddy chases them around the house. I could not imagine never hearing these sounds again. 

So today I am going to praise God for the safety he provided for my husband yesterday. I am going to hug and kiss, and tell that man just how much I love and adore him. You should too(not my husband silly) but the people you love. Life is too short not to.

  1. Oh Caycee I'm so relieved he's a-ok, how scary for everyone! And your post brought tears to m eyes-we just had our 2nd baby a week and a half ago and I can't imagine life without my husband in it to share in our new family of four.

  9. Oh no! I am so glad that he is okay! It is truly a big reminder of how thankful we are/should be when something like this happens. My friend was in a wreck on Monday night with her 2 year old son. She broke both of her legs in several places, her ankles, pelvis, all left ribs and right arm. Although, I cannot imagine the pain and all she is going through I am so very thankful that she is still here to share our lives with. God's grace is so amazing.

  16. Beautiful post from a beautiful friend and so true. Sometimes it takes things like this to put things in perspective. You are a lucky lady, Todd is such a great husband- don't worry I won't hit on him (You know my type is chubby beer drinker)! Love you and glad Todd was ok- even I was anxious and freaked out all day for you!

  18. Hi there! I'm a new follower to your blog, and I seriously know that I would have lost it too if anything were to happen to Chris. I don't know how I would have reacted seeing our vehicle like that but I am so happy that everyone is okay!

  19. SO glad your husband is ok! Unfortunately it takes things like this to put it all into perspective. My husband was diagnosed 4 years ago (3 mo. before our baby girl was born) with malignant melanoma. It rocked me to my core and to this day I thank God everyday for a healthy husband. Your family is beautiful Caycee!
