God is good.

My close friends (Christie, Jeremy, and their son Luke) almost died the other night. Imagine my shock to read this post in the morning, knowing nothing about this incident! Saturday night, the Tudors were driving home from visiting family in ATL on the accursed I-95 route. It was raining and they hydroplaned in front of a semi-truck. The truck dragged them 200+ feet and dumped them onto a median. Christie, who was in the driver's seat, had the semi's front bumper six inches away from her face. Every window in their car shattered. Absolutely crazy wreck. But all three of them (actually four - Christie is pregnant) are fine and are just a bit bruised. Seriously. Praise the Lord they are okay! Talk about a religious experience!

And you know what the first thing that came to my mind was? That I am a terrible friend! I hadn't had a chance yet to talk to one of my very best friends on her birthday! Christie just had her 28th a week ago on Sunday. (Jeremy's birthday is tomorrow and little Luke's is also this month.) And I had let a whole week go by without being able to get in touch with her. Do you know how horrid I felt?!? (Still feel?!?) Just rotten. My punishment was to read about this accident this morning on Jeremy's blog and have to think on it all day until I could call after work.

So, because they read this blog and because I don't tell the people I love that I love them nearly enough - I love you guys!!! (I know I just told you that on the phone, but now it is in written format so you don't forget it.) And I am so thankful that ya'll are in my life. I can't imagine a world without Tudor Time and chocolate-chip cookie nights. Ya'll mean so much to me.

It is awful that something terrible has to ALMOST happen to make us wake up and remember what we need to do!! I am so happy that your friends are all right!! All is well here. Mom and DAd are out tonight visiting two small groups. They are already getting tired of smiling!! Sandy

Oh, my Suzy Q - I already know how much you love us. Thanks for the post. Gosh, is it wrong to love all this attention? ;) I'm posting some pictures. Warning though, they aren't for the faint-hearted. I hope you guys have had a wonderful day. And I want to hear about the movie. Here's to many more years of Bomgardner-Tudor time. Love ya!

Ok, so my wife seems to be getting more sympathy about the bumper, but really, as my memory is coming back we are pretty sure my head broke my window. My head freakin hurts still...it's either that or my brain is growing to exponential size...see I even used a big word!
We love you too!
