I've known for many years that I have a special group of Guardian Angels in place taking care of my family and I. I've always joked that I hoped God was paying them overtime for the extra hours they work to keep us all safe.
I've been blessed with my amazing husband, Kent...we've been married for 33 years and he has always worked hard to provide for all of us. While teaching a class at Honeyrun Quilters on Friday I received a message from the store that my husband called and had taken a bad fall off of a ladder while installing a cabinet job and couldn't get up...could I come to help? This is when you see everything pass before your eyes. Luckily three of my students were nurses and two of them came to help. There are a million things that run through your mind when you see your husband being packaged up and taken away in an ambulance...but it's the prayers of those close to you and those that you are saying yourself that provide the comfort.
Some people would consider this a bad day...I consider it one of the luckiest days of our lives. Kent took a very nasty fall off of the ladder and miraculously missed his spine by an inch...no internal damage to his spleen and kidney...he can walk, he can continue to work in his passion of woodworking...he is still with us. God's Blessings.
I am very private in my faith...I live my life and teach my classes knowing that I am here for a reason and I make the most of every single day. I wanted to share my story with all of you so that during this holiday season you too could be thankful for the blessings in your lives. I am very thankful for my family, my students, and all of you...and I am VERY thankful for the Guardian Angels, both spiritual and those physically here with me, for taking such good care of us.
