Eventful Weekend

But I cry to you for help, O LORD; in the morning my prayer comes before you. Psalms 88:13

My oldest daughter, Amanda (she lives in Colorado) was in a car wreck Friday morning.  It was snowing and she hit an icy patch on the interstate, spun a few times and hit the rail.  Praise God she is fine but her placenta tore (placenta abruption) and she has been in the hospital facing the possibility of an emergency C-section.   Needless to say I have been very pre-occupied this weekend.  Okay, okay.  At least preoccupied sounds less sinful than saying "worried". LOL!   In all seriousness,  I have truly felt The Lord's presence and have felt the many prayers that have been said for Amanda and our family.   Praise The Lord, she was released from the hospital and is on bed rest until she sees her regular doctor and Jaelynn's specialists tomorrow.

I have been very humbled and touched by the amazing outpouring of prayer and concern from my friends and family this weekend.  We have received many calls from people checking on Amanda and checking on us. Calls with offers to help me get to Colorado, offers for rides to the aiport, and on and on.  I have been truly touched and amazed.  I keep thinking of the quote from "It's A Wonderful Life" that was written in George Bailey's Book.  It read:

Remember, no man is a failure who has friends.

Lastly, this afternoon, Jordyn participated in a scholarship competition.  This was her fourth and final year of being selected to participate.  She played the 3rd movement of 'Moonlight Sonata' beautifully and she finished with Second Place.  The young lady that won First Place played a beautiful piece on the flute.   

My mom and dad took us out to dinner at Outback Steak House to celebrate after the competition. Yummy!!  I love me some steak.  I have often said  I could be a Vegetarian if it were not for steak and Chik-Fil-A.  

Needless to say, I am one thankful, full, happy and tired Mama!
