How in the world did these 2 days fly by and I didn’t get in my thankfulness??? I think that I will roll 16 and 17 into one….it’s a biggie!!
I am so very thankful to GOD and my family. Today my great aunt was hit by a train. YES A TRAIN!!! It happened in a small town in north Iowa. This little town has tracks that run right through the middle of the town. Population maybe 50. Anyways, there were a couple cars ahead of her and they drove right on through. She thought it was safe to go as well. She looked and didn’t see the train nor did she hear any whistles. The train caught her back bumper and twirled her around. I think my mom said it hit the car in 3 places as it spun around. The ONLY place that was not bunged up on the car was the place where she was sitting. God and his angels were definitely watching over her. Also, her son was just coming into town and he saw the little red car but not thinking it was his mother, he went to her house. She wasn’t there. He headed to the tracks. Another miracle. He was there for her at the right time. 911 was called, and she was taken to a local hospital to be checked out. She has bumps and bruises. She has a very hurt ankle that she can’t walk on. She is 84 years old. Holy cows, I am so glad that God was with her and around her. It could have much much worse. She is home tonight with her other son and daughter -in-law. She may have to go to a nursing home for some rehab until that ankle gets better but she is good.
I am also so very thankful for my mom. I miss her some days somethin fierce. I am only nearly 2 hours from her, but not seeing her is hard. I love my mom. I can’t imagine my life without her. It’s hard that my dad isn’t alive too. I miss him too. God has got them both tho. In heaven my dad is watching over us. On earth, my mom is watching over me and K. I wish I could give her more. More love. Repay the money I owe. Win the lottery and give her retirement that she surely deserves. For now, I will continue to love her and tell her that I love her everyday.
