Earlier in the evening, I was going to title this post "Why we have 12-year olds."
We're getting some major snow here right now and Young Boy was out playing in it, shoveling and throwing snowballs with his dad. A site that makes a mom smile.
Just as quickly as you can throw a snowball, a total freak accident happened. Young Boy fell into an old cistern / well full of water and was hanging on for dear life...I was hanging on with him...and so was God.
I'll spare you all the gory details. After a thorough check-over and aside from some scrapes, bumps & bruises and some very sore muscles, Young Boy is fine. Thank you, God! No really...THANK YOU, GOD.
I wasn't going to post about this, but after 2 Advil PM and no sleep, I decided differently. I've never been a real "witness" to God and I think He'd want me to use this opportunity to tell you about Him.
I also just want to share 4 things:
1. If you live on 'older' property (in the country) with well covers and such, PLEASE check them and tell your kiddos NOT to walk on them. Ever. (I can't tell you how many times we walked on that old steel-plate cover.)
2. There IS a God. He listens to your cries for help. He gives you strength that you didn't know you had...just ask me and my 12-yr. old.
3. 911 operators, deputies, EMT's, nurses & doctors are all God's angels, walking around here on earth. It's true.
4. There is nothing more important than your family. Family that you love and family that loves you.
Be well my friends, be well.
