Every year we are thankful for our little family. I’m thankful that my husband and kiddos do their best to make me feel loved and appreciated most days, but especially on Mother’s day. This past year we have become even more thankful for so many reasons. Just like everyone else, we have spent the majority of this year sheltering in place. I am so thankful that after a very dark year, there is hope on the horizon. Our family has spent more time out and about this past month than the entire 12 months prior. We feel that is worth celebrating. We are currently in a stage of life where we have two teens as well as an almost 10 year old; that is challenging under any circumstances. We are both thankful and proud of how we have all grown during this time.

What makes us even more thankful and gives us major reason for reflection are two big things that happened in recent months. Our youngest endured a bone grafting surgery that affected both her hip, jaw, and palate. She was in so much pain, but she is stronger and healthier for it. During her surgery and her 6+ week recovery we were blessed with the help, prayers, good thoughts, gifts, and dinners made by friends new and old. We thought that was our big scare of the year, but we were in for a bigger surprise and bigger reason to be thankful.
Our big kids have been such troopers at sheltering in place and rarely complain. We feel fortunate that we have three kids in very Covid cautious families that live close by and even during a pandemic they have been able to become friends with. All the families require masks and hang outs must be outdoors only. We all allow our teen kids to ride their bikes to a walk up doughnut shop less than a mile from our house. Three weeks before Mother’s Day we got a call that our son (who was in a crosswalk with time on the clock) was hit by a truck. He had gone up ahead of the girls who were lagging, he thought he would get in line early. He entered the crosswalk legally and was hit by a driver making an unprotected left hand turn. Video shows the older couple getting out of their truck, checking their bumper, a very quick exchange with our son, and then getting back in their truck and driving off. Our son hobbled his bike to the curb where he first called his sister who was less than a block away, and then us. Thankfully, three weeks later his ankle is still swollen but he does not even need crutches. His road rash is healed, even his gashes on his hand are all but disappeared. When we looked at the video, we know it could have so easily been so much worse. I could be spending Mother’s day in a hospital. I could be spending Mother’s day planning a funeral. And it happened in a second. That is what is so mind blowing, that it all happened in a second. One thing I am so thankful for, the last thing we said to one another when he left that afternoon was “I love you.” and it wasn’t forced. Anyway, we still have all three kids and I am just thankful for every day.
