This mama is just a little more thankful today...especially for our officers in blue and the kind people that helped my family in the last 24 hours!
My little buddy and my mom were traveling yesterday when my Mom's car broke down on the side of the road. I was at work when I got a phone call saying the car was dead at a traffic light, but they were doing okay! The fact that they were okay...thank God! However, when you hear something like that, your heart just leaps out of your chest. Of course I was thinking the worst...what if someone hits them on the side of the road??? What if Luke's hungry? Is his diaper wet? Are his clothes soaked? Is my Mom doing okay??? It just so happens that the truck driver who was behind my Mom when all this went down was a very kind woman. I'll be honest...I don't know her name, and I'm still trying to find the name of the officer who leaped into action, but they all had a part in not only keeping both Luke and my mom safe, but helping carry all of Luke's stuff into a local diner where I finally got to meet up with them! The owner of the diner was so kind to let my family camp out for a little bit until I could pick them up!
I hugged my kid a whole lot yesterday and mom and dad too! Not going to lie...it was difficult to go to bed last night with all the events of the day on my mind...thus, the late night workout at 2AM. But today is better and I'm just extra thankful for the good people in this world. Bad things can happen, but the goodness of people truly shines, especially in times of need.
To that officer, that truck driver, that diner owner...you're all in my daily prayers. Thank you for being such heroes to my family yesterday and keeping them safe and sound. Chris and I are forever grateful!
