Spiritual Sunday!!

It was a sunny but cold winter day. We were traveling back home from visiting my mothers house in tim buck two....

It was me and 6 kids, #7 and #8 were still in my tummy, only me with the children because Maka was to sick still to come down and visit. As I was driving, there was virtually no snow on the roads, no ice, everything seemed to be going great.. Kids all sleeping, all except one..

Then life changed before me eyes, before I could slow down, snow, Ice and all the horror.

Horror, YES HORROR. We weren't at a place were if you wrecked, you would slide off to the side of the road, you could possibly go off the cliff, I was scared, I had a whole family to protect.

I didn't put on the brakes, just took my foot off the gas, and held my breathe, the vehicle next to me was not ready for it either, as we both started to slide, I screamed out loud "Heavenly Father help me!!!"

Aanya shouted out "mom look", the car next to us, started sliding out of control, I felt my car correcting itself and had a feeling that someone was pulling us to safety.

The car next to us did not fair so well, as we slowed down, they twisted and turned, and fell off the cliff. I was scared I did not know what to do, I couldn't stop, I couldn't do anything.

I had Aanya call 911, I couldn't take my hands off the wheel for fear of death, I couldn't look anywhere but straight..

I was almost to the state of hyperventilating.. I wanted to stop and help so badly, but knew there was nothing I could do. I was pregnant, I had 6 children in the car. How was I going to get out of this situation, I asked myself. I continually pleaded to my Father above, to help us in our time of need. I called Maka, told him what was going on, and he walked me through the rest..

I felt comforted to hear his voice, I felt stronger, I knew with Heavenly Fathers love, and the love from my husband, I could make it..

We do not need to go through struggles alone, let your Father in Heaven know how you are feeling. He knows, but he needs you to ask him..

Lean on your loved ones for support, try to make good out of something that is bad. We all go through it, no ones is perfect, or protected (except of course the 3 nephites).


I am dead tired, I don't know if this even has a point, but I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone, lean on your families, and friends, and You are a special child of god.. Be strong my dear friends, ask the Lord for help in your Horrors of life, He will help and answer you, I bet my life on it.... ;)

So, I was driving home from Las Vegas today, and the roads were TERRIBLE. I was so so so scared, and I said a prayer. Right after I prayed this blog entry of yours kept coming into my mind and I felt at peace. :) Anytime I got nervous I would remember your blog and it was really really comforting.
