[....] My heart sank into my stomach because he almost sounded like he was hurt and as I gathered myself I asked if he was okay and he said yes. It's hard to hear your spouse, the person you love the most, the strong one of you both to be shaken so badly. So I had to wake our son and bring him to my Mother's next door and make the horrid drive to the scene. It was about 6 miles from where we live and he had turned onto a main road in a local city and hit a patch of black ice and lost control and ended up in a ditch. The way the truck looked lying there in the ditch made you think that the person driving had to be moderately to seriously injured but his Guardian Angels were definitely flying with him that day, their arms wrapped around him. God watched over him, that's for certain.
You can replace vehicles. Car lots will sell you cars all day. But you can't replace loved ones, and I don't know what I would have done if he were seriously hurt or worse. But I try not to think of the 'what-if's'. I'm just so thankful that he was okay and that he was able to walk away with nothing but a bruise on his thigh. It will definitely be a day we won't forget and I'll be eternally greatful to the Man upstairs. Here are some photos taken with my phone at the scene of the accident:
And this was after they towed it to our home:
Scary isn't it? Very. I hope this never happens to us again-[Good Lord willing].
