Thank GOD

I hate Ice. I hate icey conditions. I have always erred on the side of caution when it is snowing and cold outside I prefer to stay home. I don't like the idea of being in an accident any more than I would actually like having an accident. It makes me very nervous.

A couple of months ago a friend of mine was very randomly killed in a car accident. It was awful. He was newly engaged. It really could not have been sadder.

That incident set my anxiety level at an all time high. Every time Zack leaves my heart drops. Even when it's not icey. But lately it's been super icey and I pray every time he leaves, almost the whole time he's gone, that he will come home safe. It makes my stomach turn. Until I'm a shakey anxious mess.

Then, on Monday, I got a panicy phone call from Zack.

This is what happens when the roads are icey and someone runs you off the road.

A totaled car.

These pictures make me sick. Really. It's hard for me to look at them. The next picture however makes me want to cry. It makes me want to get sick.
Thank GOD for these guard wires.

That's his head lights. In the guard wire. Those wires are what kept him out of on coming traffic.

I was at home blogging about spiders and cleaning out living room and he was spinning full 360's on the interstate.


He was really upset with me when he came home. Because I couldn't be upset. I had to act like it was nothing. Because I'm already crazy. I can't think about how bad it could have been.
I love him so much.


Thank GOD.

NOW my crazy is at an all time high.

That looks almost identical to what happened in 2007 when my car was totaled in the rain. coincidentally someone else also ran me off the road turning left when i had the right a way. so glad he is safe! driving is a blessing and a curse at times.
