Extra hugs today!

I got a scary phone call yesterday at work. My brother asked if I had a few minutes to talk and sounded pretty serious... he never does this, so of course I was a little worried. Thankfully everything, and everyone, was okay...but he got in a car accident while leaving school. Someone driving on the main road was going nearly 50mph in a school zone and hit him on his front drivers side as he left the parking lot. They both, somehow, walked away without a scratch.

Even though he was alright, this overwhelming feeling came over me for the rest of the afternoon... I can't imagine if that wreck had gone another way. It just made me want to squeeze ALL my loved ones at once and tell them all how much I love them! Fortunately tonight, we happened to be having everyone over to finally celebrate my grandpa's birthday and the timing couldn't be more perfect. I'm excited to make dinner -- we're having a huge taco bar, with homemade guac, chips + salsa, and spanish rice! That's my kinda night!

Spending time with my family is so important, and I'm really lucky to be so close with them.

I'm just thankful its a day closer to Friday! Have a great Thursday!

  3. Oh my goodness, that's so scary. I was in a small accident where the air bag deployed [2 weeks before my wedding] and it was the scariest experience. Everyone walked away fine, but goodness it was super scary and really made me think about what was important. I'm so thankful everyone is okay! Hugs to you and your brother!

  10. I am so glad that he is ok friend. I know that had to be scary and not fun at all. Little moments like that are so surreal. I'm glad you got to have some family time and just hug your sweet family.

  11. Oh my goodness! That is scary. I'm glad everyone is okay. It's easy to take things like family for granted, but we shouldn't. Things can go from good to bad so fast.
