GRATEFUL!

Today I am reflecting on how blessed I am! I had a scary experience happen and am feeling so lucky it wasn't worse then it was. Naomi wanted to watch a movie a couple days ago and I told her that if she helped me put her laundry away that she could watch whatever movie she wanted. I was in the Living Room seperating piles of stuff she could put away. First she put shorts and skirts in the bottom drawer of her dresser and then I handed her some socks and panties for Tayler's top drawer. I don't know how many times I have told her not to step in that bottom drawer because the dresser could tip over. We had this big Turtle tank on top of there dresser.... "had"! I all of the sudden heard this CRASH and I knew that it wasn't good. I run in there and the tank is in a billion pieces, clothes everywhere. Naomi's hair is dripping from all the water...I asked her if she was ok and of course at this point she is only screaming, I pulled the dresser back up and looked over at Naomi and the only thing I could see was BLOOD splattered all of the wall and onto the carpet. I grab her and put her in the bath and stripped down all her clothes so I could find out where she was bleeding only to find that it was just her finger. She split it pretty good, not enough to need stitches but plenty of blood. I don't know how she did not get crushed by the dresser and the tank, for her to be standing in that drawer and having it come over...I have no idea how she got so lucky!
So besides a HUGE mess and $75 worth of carpet cleaning I am feeling so blessed my little girl came out of that ok. I didn't even take a picture because I think I was in shock, I wish I would of because Rodger didn't even see it. As for our turtles, they are still alive and kicking. I found one under a drawer and the other under a rock and they are both fine....I don't know how that happened either.
I am truly blessed and grateful for my husband and kids and for the ability to face everyday challenges knowing that I have my savior by my side!
