Everything happens for a reason

As if life could not get any more stressful, I was in a car accident on Monday afternoon.

I am okay and thank God that I am alive. I have a broken toe, a sprained ankle and lots of bruises. I thank God that Jelly Belly was not in the car.

I don't remember much but it was the scariest thing I have ever been through.
I am so thankful God took care of me. I am trying so hard to be positive. Considering our Big Announcement, the timing could not be any worse. I keep telling myself that somehow things will work out. Everything happens for a reason.

I am having a hard time turning off the little voices in my head.
How could this have happened? We are suppose to leave for California next week to find a place to live. He starts his job on the 24th, I can't even walk. A higher cost of living and now a car payment, there is just no way.

I keep staring at my treadmill, wondering when I will be on it again. I must confess that I even weighed myself today, I am up 5 lbs. in 5 days, how can that be possible? It's got to be the swelling, right? And why oh why am I even thinking of my weight?

I am alive, and I am thankful but I am praying for strenghth to get us through this.

Jelly Belly has been amazing. She understands that I am in pain. The day of the accident, she was very upset when the day came to an end and I had not arrived to pick her up yet. She was told I had a headache and had to go to the doctor. Grandma did her best to calm her down but Jelly Belly insisted on going home. Tia A. brought her home a little bit after midnight, shortly after we got home from the hospital. Luckily she was asleep.

The next morning, she came in and asked if my head was okay and told me that she heard Grandma on the phone saying I had been in an accident. This confirms that she fully understands Grandma when she speaks Spanish.  We didn't give her any details but she cried a bit when we said it was true. She did not like the bruises and scratches and became very worried when she saw me walk/hop for the first time. Since then she has been very helpful, holding my hand each time I need to go potty and giving me lots of tender kisses.

I miss my daily routine with her, I miss hugging her and squeezing her. My family and friends have been wonderful.
I am so grateful for everyone's help, prayers and support.  Something good will come out of this, since everything happens for a reason.

I'm so sorry you were in an accident. I am very happy that you will heal and that Jelly Belly was not with you.

Everything will work out. Congratulations to your husband on his new job! Very exciting.

Pobresita! I hope you feel better. Girl, when it rains it frigging pours. I too believe that everything happens for a reason. I have to, my life has been chaos for the past 2 years, I know in the end it will all work out for the better (though it sometimes feels like I am caught in a total shit storm with no end in sight!) I believe that between my faith in God and my own belief that I can do anything..we'll be alright. This is a crazy time o change for you and that is scary (believe me I know..we did a move across country last year) but there is a reason. You may never know the reason but take comfort that it is all part of the plan for you and your family. God bless and may things get easier fro you and your family soon. Great things are right around the corner!

I'm glad to hear that you're okay. Accidents are scary. As for the big changes coming up in your life, have faith. God will provide and protect you as He always has. It's okay to be afraid, but hold on to Him. I've been there. I promise, it'll all be okay.
Take care and get better soon. Thanks for stopping by my blog despite your pain. :(

How scary. I'm so sorry that you had to experience this, but so thankful that you will heal and your precious baby was not in the car with you. Stay positive! You'll be back to your old routine in no time.
