I have a viable excuse...really!

So I was supposed to blog today. The week (as you can see from the photos) has been horrible and crazy and wonderful. Wonderful in that my husband wasn't killed in a head-on collision one week ago today. Horrible because the driver of the other vehicle that skidded on an icy bridge and struck my husband head-on did perish at the scene. Sadly this family also lost their home and all possessions to fire two weeks prior to the fatal accident! Please keep the Watson family in your prayers. The driver left behind four little children under the age of five. Please also lift up the other two passengers of the Watson car, who were airlifted with massive injuries. They are both doing better but still not out of the woods yet.

Have you ever been involved in an automobile accident? Did it change the way you drive? If so, how so?

My husband wants to sell my Jeep Liberty and get me a tank to drive. He has banned me from driving the Jeep until further notice. SO the wreck definitely turned him against smaller cars. He walked away from the above wreck with only minor injuries. The crazy man was walking around (with a broken knee cap!) helping the police officer direct traffic after the wreck!

Thankful for my husband's protection yet sad for the other family. Utilizing this blog post to garner prayers for the family and their tragic situation.

Thanks all!

I will be praying for the Watson family and all who were so drastically affected by this mishap. God will prevail and I can understand the pain and suffering the children are going through. May the community rally behind the family and show them God's endless love...Jennie

I'm glad your husband is okay! Have you considered a Hummer or Suburban? :)
I'll be praying for the Watson family!

Thanks, Karen! He wants something with a diesel motor in it since he makes biodiesel.

Thanks for stopping by all and for the prayers.

I was in an head-on crash that totaled my Suburban but I wasn't hurt too much. I agree with your hubby--get the big SUV. I am sure it saved my life (that all those angels' wings beating all around me--do I have stories about that.)

I'm so sorry for the other family and praying for them, too. This is something I think about whenever my family is driving now, and yes, I think about it when I'm driving. Because the other driver crossed the median and hit me, I do think about it when another driver gets close to the center line.

It's a weird feeling to survive something like that.

Cheryl, I've heard about the accident on Facebook and Seekerville. Seeing the photographs gave me chills. Thankfully God was watching over your husband that day. My heart and prays go out to the Watson family.
