warning: this is not my normal quirky rachel post.

so yesterday the griffith family, meaning all 6 of us, were in a car accident.

shane was driving.
we had just picked up jackson from school.
we were on our way to a doctors appointment.
we were stopped at a read light.
a read light we’ve sat at a million times.
then a driver coming toward us started having a seizure.

suddenly everything was in slow motion right in front of me.
as the car hit us i remember saying “oh jesus.”
all i could think of was our four kids behind me.
MY kids. the kids I’M supposed to be protecting.
my heart just sank in my chest and i was beyond scared.
then the car hit us.

before i give someone a heart attack, we are all fine.
thank god!!!

our truck is completely totaled.
but that’s not important. really.

it’s been about 20 hours since then.
physically…i’m fine.
mentally…i’m a little messy.

i write this with a heavy heart.
but i write this to say that all those things i’ve been stressing about just don’t matter.

i don’t care that i’m not a real pattern designer.
i don’t care that i haven’t touched my machine in forever.
i don’t care about my blog stats, giveaways & tutorials.
i. just. don’t. care.

i care that our accident could’ve been WAY worse.
i care that i could be missing my children &/or my husband.
i care that maybe i haven’t been thankful enough for what i DO have.

today i’m gonna hug my little ones a little longer,
kiss my hubby a few more times,
and thank god for what i have been given.

i hope yall will do the same.
