BEYOND Blessed and Thankful!

I cannot express to you enough how thankful and blessed we truly are. I have an amazing husband, a wonderful family and God watches over us everyday. I can't wait to blog about the amazing scarf I received from the lovely Roxanne over at Hangin with the Bradfords for our scarf swap. But you will just have to wait to see it tomorrow. Today I want to share with you one of the many reasons God is AMAZING!


My beautiful and loving sister Michele is alive today. Friday night she was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident. She was attending the Fort Bend County Fair and left on a motorcycle with a friend. She wasn't wearing a helmet and after accelerating when she wasn't expecting it she feel off the motorcycle and hit the ground hard. Without giving any other terrifying details I will say that she is alive today and boy was God watching out for her. She spent the rest of the night in the ER. She has no broken bones but the majority of her body is covered in road rash and its not a pretty sight. She is missing alot of her skin but again she is ALIVE. She received a few stitches as well and is pretty banged up. She also hit her head really hard but didn't suffer a concussion. The recovery is going to take a very long time and just changing out her bandages takes us almost 3 hours. It could have been so much worse and to think of what the other outcomes would have been absolutely kills me and brings us all to tears. But she is still here with us and we have so much to be thankful for. She is home with my parents now and is in great spirits. Michele will be in alot of pain and the healing they say can take up to a year. She is a strong woman though and I know she will come out of this stronger than ever but she will always remember that Friday night, as will the rest of us, for the rest of our lives. One thing I will say is that night she was wearing a shirt that I gave her a while back with a cross made of rhinestones. The people working on her that night had to cut her clothes off but I believe that her wearing that shirt really protected her and I know that God was there with her. I promise you Michele, you will be getting a new shirt from me to replace the last but I am so happy that you are still here today.

So I finish this post with many kleenex in hand and tears flowing but I feel that we are beyond blessed and truly thankful for God's miracle. I hope that you all had a blessed weekend as well! xoxo

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry for the scary weekend you had. And rejoice with your family that Michelle is okay. Motorcycles are awful. My cousin is an ER nurse and says there's nothing worse than motorcycle accident victims. What a blessing that she came away from the accident alive. I'll continue to pray for her lengthy recovery-- for strength, comfort and peace for her & your family. My sisters have had their fair share of car accidents-- Megan was in a head on collision driving to Austin the day Carson was born. It's so terrifying when someone you love is injured, but always makes you stop and count your blessings. Praise God that Michelle is alive and on the road to recovery!
