A lot can change in 6 days

I'm a little behind on my blogging this month, but this morning I realized that retro blogging works for me. If I had posted these pictures and my thoughts from the day back on October 3rd, I probably would have told you that it started out as a beautiful fall day and turned into an afternoon of anxiety. It was the day my dad revealed his motorcycle to me. I didn't post these pictures then because I was still sorting out how I felt about it all.

But now? I'm so thankful for this day and the pictures I took. Because 6 days later Dad would have a serious accident on this motorcycle, and for a few hours in the emergency room we would all wonder what life was going to look like from there on out. It was all up in the air.

These images are a reminder to me of how much blessing God has poured out on my family. He gave us one another, and He knew on October 3rd that October 9th was coming. We continue to be grateful for my dad's healing and recovery, and most of all for God's protection over him. And I'm so grateful for my mom and dad.
