the "SHUFFLE"


My heart is full and I really don't know what to write. The main reason I post is to thank everyone for there prayers, concern, and love. I have thought a lot, about a lot of things since Saturday and am unable to write them all down.
I just want everyone to know how grateful I am that I am okay and many times I find my self crying because of all the gratitude I have for all the blessings that are being poured out to me.
My mom is here to take care of me, which Ryan and I are so grateful for. I am getting a long and doing all right. Again, thank you for your prayers, it is overwhelming to think of all the people that are praying for me. Thank you.


I know it seems crazy to see me smiling and giving peace signs- regardless of my concussion and being 1/2 oblivious of what is going on and having so much adrenaline from the accident... mostly, I was feeling so grateful that I was alive and talking. I didn't know what the prognosis was at that time, but knew it was going to be okay. Now I say... I couldn't deal with broken bones if I were dead, but I am alive, so I can.


A lot of the same pictures. When I was getting put in the stretchers I told Ryan to get my camera, he was hesitant, but after I convinced him, these are the pictures he got. I wish he could have gotten pictures of the accident, but maybe it is better he didn't so I don't have to have flashbacks about that too.

Especial thanks to my husband for being so patient and helping me with everything. He had been such an angel.
Thank you to Scott- the paramedic helping me. I wish I had his phone number to say thanks. I probably won't ever see him.
For those of you that don't know what happened... I was a passenger in a car that was taking a left hand turn. A man ran a red light and came straight at me (t-boning our car) going about 50 miles per hour. Our car did a 180 into the other lanes hit another car and the car that hit us slid across the ground and flipped over our car and his hood landed on the hood of our car.

It was divine intervention that allowed me to only getting a concussion, broken collar bone, marked lungs, a possible broken rib, wip lash and bumps, bruises, headaches, and other pains. I could be much, much worse, and yet I have been saved. I feel so very grateful.

Again, thank you to all of you for your thoughts, prayers and love.
