Hi ladies (and gents)! It has been raining for the past few days and not too many people are happy about it, but me, I LOVE it. Not too crazy about the power going out and kids crying. but the rain.....love it!!
Day before yesterday, my ex husband called me at work and all he said was " I was in an accident, I need you to come." My heart immediately began racing as I asked where he was, grabbed my purse and hurried out the door. I don't even think I told anyone where I was going. It was raining that day too and I just thought, " this is no good". As I approached the street, I saw 3 police cars, a school bus and people standing around but I didn't see him. I prayed the hardest prayer I have prayed in weeks!! I jumped out of the car only to hear a police officer tell me that I could not come up closer but I told him that my children's dad had called me because he was in an accident. He told me to go on... I walked around the bus to see him standing talking to a few people. WHEW!! It seems as though the bus driver got distracted with the kids and made a turn that was not wide enough and she pretty much demolished the front end of his car, but he was OK.
As he finished the report, I took him where he needed to go and went back to work, relieved. Relieved that my sons still had their dad, if only for one more day. Relieved that God had protected him. I also realized something else.. no matter how much we disagree (and at times that's alot), we both want the best for our sons and at times, we still need each other.
And I am not tooting my own horn, but sometimes we have to help those we don't like, the ones that always give us grief no matter what. Because remember " Not everyone who says Lord Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven". As hard as it is sometimes, we have to put ourselves in the other person's shoes and figure out how it would feel. So be a blessing to someone today and everyday! I'm pretty happy my ex thought enough to call me when he needed help.
I hope you all have a great weekend. I get to spend mine with my four special people!! I love you all and until next time, Lord willing.... and remember
TGIF!!! (Today God is First!)
