Nothing makes you put things into perspective than a car accident. My husband was on his way to L.A., driving in the rain, and ran through some standing water on I-5. He lost control of his truck, spun around a few times, and took out someone’s barbed-wire fence. When he called to tell me that he had just gotten into an accident, I immediately thanked God for keeping him alive and safe. After we hung up with each other though, I couldn’t help thinking about what could have happened.
Sometimes, I forget how fragile life is. One minute we are doing the dishes and the next minute the world as we know it gets turned upside down. That is what my husband is to me – he is my world. He is my best friend, my protector, and the person who inspires me to be the best woman I know how to be. I admire his courage, humor, strength, and honesty. Whenever I feel afraid to try something new or that I might give up on my dreams, I think of everything my husband has gone through and all that he has overcome. He is my role model and he encourages me to embrace life.
I never would have guessed that a slippery stretch of I-5 would be such a great reminder of how much God has given me.
