At dinner time, Scorch told me that I was the best cook ever because I made him French toast. While putting the Bean to bed, she told me I was beautiful and too funny when I let her brush my hair.
My first thought was that I hope I always remain a rock star in my kid’s eyes. My second was how very lucky I was to be here having these conversation with my kids at all.
2 years ago today I got into a car accident. I was so very lucky it wasn’t worse then it was- I walked away with cracked ribs, bad bruising and a damaged knee, but no lasting damage. If the car that I collided with had hit me 2 feet to the left of where it did, the damage would have been much more significant. If I had had the kids with me in the car, I’m not sure Scorch would be here any more (a thought that gave me nightmares for months).
I have a lot to be thankful every day- but today, I’m especially thankful I’m here to play with my kids and to relax with my husband at all. Happy Love Thursday, all!
