I really hate days like today. Days where feeling thankful leaves you feeling guilty. I know that God has a plan for each one of our lives, but still... ugh, it's hard.
Today is the anniversary of Jason's car accident. Twelve years ago today, Jason lost a very good friend in this accident and almost lost his own life as well. If you listened to his list of injuries from that day, you would honestly be surprised that anyone could recover so well. He still has complications... and then there are the scars, both physical and emotional.
There was really nothing that could have prevented it from happening. No one was drinking, no one was speeding. They were simply kids, traveling on an extremely icy highway in January.
But today, I AM thankful, even if it does leave me feeling guilty and sounds extremely selfish. I am thankful for the opportunity to live this life with such a good man. I am thankful for the love he gives me on a daily basis. I know that if the events of that horrible, horrible day had been altered in any way for him, life as I know it would be much different.
