Last night, as I was sitting down to blog, I received one of those phone calls you never want to, especially when a short errand has taken too long.
Today has been a whirlwind of phone calls, errands, and care-taking. Bones will mend (though may take a year), hearts will grow stronger, and a new (used) car will be found, but for now, I am thankful that things weren't worse, and keeping my composure while watching those I love suffer.
A friend read about the accident on FB and surprised us with a pressure cooler full of soup; I started to cry on the phone when she said she was on her way over. There was no way I'd be able to cook, and we needed to eat. I thought that was something that only happens in movies.
I've never really had something like this happen before; we're all a little out of our depth. Be careful tonight/this morning. Take the extra time so you're not in a rush. Cherish carefree days and moments.
I will remember to take care of myself. Time for bed. Blogging from my phone, as I am too tired to pull out the laptop.
(Ps please don't ask for more details in comments, as I have told those in life who are close to my heart the best I can. I rarely share personal stuff on here, and feel weird doing so...but I promised to blog my heart, and here's what's in it.):
