Thankful

Hey y'all! I'm just popping in today to say how thankful I am - God is good. Andi and I experienced a car accident last Friday that resulted in my car being totaled. I haven't had an accident since I was in high school and let me tell you that it is a total game changer when there is a child involved. We slid on the ice and lost control and the car swerved off the road into the woods. It was literally like moving in slow motion until a giant stump brought us to a halt. Luckily the car stopped 2 feet from a head on collision with a tree and the driver side took the most of the hits. All of the side airbags deployed and despite some soreness bruising and Andi biting her tongue, we were both ok. You've never seen a Mama get out of an airbag and seat belt and snatch her toddler as fast as I did.

Just remember to always drive safely in bad weather conditions, never underestimate slush and ice and be thankful for every blessing from above. We definitely had a guardian angel. (the picture of the guardian angel pin is something my Mama gave me and I've had it ever since my bad wreck in high school)

I'll report back next week with new home reno pics because we have FINISHED the laundry room, mudroom and office. We've ordered the tile for the kitchen backsplash and that should be in hopefully next week. We also picked up a gorgeous new piece for the dining room that I need to share and updated some things in the living room!

  1. Oh, Jessi. I am SO sorry to hear this, but SO grateful you're both okay! There's nothing scarier than losing complete control of your vehicle with your child in it. I'll keep you both in my thoughts and prayers, as I'm sure it's still so upsetting. Sending all the hugs. <3

  4. OH MY! Praise God you both are safe and relatively unharmed. Angels are among us, I believe that. God is our provider, comforter, and protector. I am happy you're both OK, and the car can be replaced. I hope you can rest up and recover (emotionally) from the accident as you get back into day to day life.

  12. Oh, sweet friend! I am so sorry to hear about your accident. I was in a car accident with my oldest daughter in the back seat when she was right about Andi's age and I remember how shaken I was. Words can't express how thankful I am to hear that you both are safe today. Wiping away tears of gratitude and praising God for protecting you both! *Biggest HUGS attached here*
