A Snowy Thank You



Kentucky has had it's fair share of cold and snowy weather in the last week. Hopefully, it will warm up soon... if you call 46 degrees warm! (Chuckle) I created this card as a special thank you. My hubby underwent a heart cath last week. Thankfully the doctor found nothing. The procedure required him to remain in the hospital until 7PM that evening. By that time we were under a winter weather advisory and our roads were nasty! Both vehicles were at the hospital and I was fearful to take him home and risk running off the road. Obviously he was not in any shape to trek home! I was stressing to say the least. And then God answered my prayers! The night before a wonderful couple from our church asked me if I was afraid of driving in bad weather. I told them no as it had never been an issue before. Then they told me "if anything happens please call us." They have a 4 wheel drive vehicle! Ron immediately answered and we made arrangements to meet! What wonderful people. The trip was treacherous in their vehicle and I shudder to think what could have happened if I had stubbornly thought I could do it on my own... A lesson I'm sure God needed to remind me of. I created this card to thank them for their kindness. Have a blessed day!
