Thanksgiving has a whole new meaning...

Every year we gather with our family and give thanks for food, health, etc. and most of the time that thanks is given but I don't think truly appreciated.

Well, that has truly changed for me. Traveling home from my parent's house on Thanksgiving evening, we were hit by a guy going who ran a red light at about 50 miles an hour. I am soo thankful that my husband was driving slowly through the light, because had he been going any faster, that guy would have hit the passenger side of the car where my son sits. I am extremely lucky that we all walked away unscathed.

Wish I could say the same for the car, but oh well. The car can be replaced. All of this certainly makes you stop and think about just how precious life truly is. Terrible things could have happened in that accident.

I am thankful that God was looking out for my family.
