It was a good van! We loved it since the day we bought it. Countless trips to Wal-Mart, doctor runs, trips to the beach, even a trip up the east coast!! Yes, many memories were made in this van.
And gosh darn if some lady didn't just take all that away in a split second! One minute I am sitting in the van (with two of my boys!!!!!!) waiting to turn, the next second I'm watching this blur fly into us and my world is changed...Now I know it could have been much worse, but because that lady was not paying attention my family has been affected! Our van is totaled, my son and I had to go to the ER, I have a bruised bone in my wrist and a severe sprain, and my children are slightly skiddish about getting in a car. All because of her bad choice!!!! Obviously I am still having some issues dealing with this...I don't know how or when we will all feel better about this, I don't know when my heart will stop pounding in my chest every time I see someone come up behind me, I don't know what we are going to do about another van, but what I do know that my God can handle this situation.
Let's switch gears shall we.
Tonight the two ladies that I teach with and myself were recognized at our Board of Education meeting. We recieved the Star Cluster award. Our school uses the CHILD model of teaching, and we LOVE it! To read more about it click here. I went sans brace and boy I am paying for it now.
Say a prayer for us. At least we are entering the home stretch...summer break is in sight!!!!
I have many hats...wife, mother, teacher, student, friend, daughter, sister, (chef, nurse, counselor, financial advisor...) just to name a few. I am enjoying the ride, and know that God has given me the strength to accomplish it all!
