House of Thanks: Day 1

Today I’m thankful for the enormous amount of patience and understanding afforded to me by my friends and family during these past few months. I’ve not only turned my own world upside down, but the lives of those closest to me as well. It hasn’t been all smooth sailing, and I’m very much aware of that. There have been a lot of days when I’ve lost patience with myself, yet my small gaggle of supporters have listened with open hearts and ears no matter how far off or how repetitive my ramblings have become. I’m thankful for that, even though I don’t often express it.

I’m also thankful that my guardian angel is always on point. This morning after dropping Kevin off at work and witnessing the storm damage first hand I nearly rolled the Jeep. I still have no idea how it happened as I was turning left from a stop sign, but before I knew it the back end of the Jeep was sliding and I was spinning. Two entire spins one direction, before I even attempted to try and correct it. Managed to regain slight control before I felt us tipping over. At that I let go of the wheel and we flew off the road into a freshly harvested field. We slid to a stop, I started breathing again, and momentarily thought about what I was supposed to do.

We weren’t injured, the car was still running, no crops were damaged so… instead of calling it in, I popped into four wheel drive and made my way back to the road like nothing what so ever had happened. I’m still not exactly sure if that’s what I was supposed to do in that situation, but I was on my way to an appointment with my therapist and didn’t really have time to stop and fill out a police report, take field sobriety tests and all of that. Not to mention I didn’t want to pay a ticket or have our insurance premiums jump. lol. Sooooooo…. yeah. Two brushes with disaster this week which I have escaped from pretty much unscathed.

Yep… pretty thankful all around right now. I also believe I’m still in shock from this morning… but we’ll deal with that later. lol. Until later Bloggies. šŸ™‚
