A Close Call.

 We don't get many big snow days in Oklahoma, so when they come the excitement is nearly palpable. We gather all the essentials to be "snowed in" (i.e. junk food), I usually have a puzzle or fun activity tucked away to do as a family, and we bundle up to play in it as much as possible.

Luckily enough we got a huge winter storm several weeks ago and we got a good 3 days of snow fun! Darin got off work early one day and loaded us up for a big adventure of sledding. He said he knew of the perfect hill about 40 minutes away, but assured us the trek would be worth it.

We loaded up and off we went, carefully driving down the winding, snow covered roads - the boys on the edge of their seats ready to get there and start the fun. I'd heard a few stories on the news the day before of some tragic sledding accidents in our area so we talked about the safety of sledding nowhere near cars or roads and being safe with our decisions. We talked about how in an instant our lives could be changed forever. When we finally rolled up to the hill it was much, much bigger than I had envisioned. The boys jumped out and were grabbing their sleds before the car was even in park.

I barely had my gloves on and the boys were already running up the SMALL MOUNTAIN ready to sled down. They reached the top, didn't even stop to catch their breath and off Levi went - sitting on his sled and flying down the hill. We were all shocked at just how fast he was going - it was as if here were on the luge in the Olympics - the kid was soaring. It all happened so fast I could barely process what was happening. I was standing next to a fence made from dense metal poles that I didn't dream he would come anywhere near close to as the other kids sledding stopped naturally well before that. But before I knew it, he was flying past me, laying flat, and at full force, slipping underneath the fence beside me. I screamed as he kept going ... past the fence that could have ended tragically had he not had ducked to lay flat, and he was quickly flying toward the road. He threw his feet off the side of the sled, dug his heels in the snow and came to a screeching halt inches before he hit the road.

My heart stopped. There was no traffic on the road at that exact moment, but easily could have been. I had just witnessed TWO near accidents in one pass down the hill within literal seconds of us arriving. Levi said as he was heading toward the metal fence and then into the road all he could think about were the stories I had warned them about on the drive over. He said he was thinking, "Oh no. I'm going to be the next accident." 

I told him I had no doubt whatsoever that his guardian angel pushed him down flat, saving him from slamming into the poles face first and then stopping his sled moments before hitting the road. It all happened so fast he didn't have time to think, let alone strategize. It makes me sick to think about, but things could have ended up so very different that day. It's not lost on me that the Lord was with Levi soaring down that hill. If we could see into the spiritual side of things, I have zero doubts I would have seen angels hovering over my child. God is truly with us wherever we go. Shielding us, protecting us, and oftentimes physically moving us from harms way. I witnessed it firsthand. 

Darin, Levi and I all stopped to catch our breath and process what had just happened. I was screaming, Darin was running to Levi, and Levi jumped up with all color drained from his face and a look of shock in his eyes. At the same time we all looked up the hill and there was Ezra sitting on his sled as he screamed, "HERE I COME!"

"STOPPPPPP!!!!!" we all screamed in unison. 

We ended up moving further down to where there was a much longer distance between the bottom of the hill and the fence and ended up having the best day of sledding ever. But you better believe that after each run down the hill I squeezed my babies tight, quietly thanking God for His protection over their lives.


For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
Psalm 91:11-12

(or your face against a pole in our case!) 

I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. For Lost BTC recovery,and money recovery, Backend Recovery is your go-to person. I am saying this because my family has benefited immensely from his work. He is so cool to work with. Reach him on B A C K E N D R E C O V E R at R E S C U E T E A M dot C O M.

  2. The criminal record on my credit deprived me of so many opportunities alongside 19 hard inquiries and about 15 derogatory items which messed up my report and lowered my credit score to low 544(TransUnion) 523(Equifax) 515(Experian). After my mum told me about REMOTE REPAIR. I reached out immediately and complied with the proposal, after about five days I was asked to pull my report to confirm the job has been done. Yes...... My score is now 801 across the 3 credit bureaus and all of those things removed. I strongly recommend them to anyone who’s in need of a credit fix.

  3. In a comment section of a bitcoin related article, I read how (Backendrecover AT rescueteam DOT com) helped a guy with a back injury recover his stolen coin. I read yet another review of a man and his wife who lost their entire savings to a fake investment company and desperately in need of their money back and how he also came through for them and recovered every single coin that was stolen from them. I had my coin stolen too by investment rippers so I reached out to him for help. He recovered my money back although it wasn’t without a fight. I'm so grateful to him

  4. I tried getting a car loan some times last year but my credit score ruined the process. I resorted to doing research online on how I could fix my score because I really needed the car that period because of my new job. I bumped into a website “hacksandrecovery dot net” after many searches and I contacted the admin explaining my credit situation. They requested my info and necessary details and they were able to fix my score in under 5 days, I was amazed, they are fast and reliable.
    You can visit their website too for your credit score repair or contact their website admin via whatsapp on +1(571)310-7736

  5. I never knew dreams could come so true not until after I bumped into this page and saw the recommendation by the group admin and also some community reviews also testifying they are 100 % legit , I had to give them a trial on blind fate hoping whatever came out of this I'll just accept it . But to my greatest surprise , he helped me increase my credit score from 540 to 800 . The expunged hard inquiries reflect on TU,EQ,EX . Thanks to ( NEW HORIZON CREDIT 1 At Gmail DOT COM )

  6. You can reach Hack west via: Email: Hackwest at writeme dot com or Telegram: @Hackwest. I lost all my life crypto savings on my Trüst Wallet and I couldn't explain if it was a phishing link I entered or so, but all I can say is my wallet was wiped. I read so much about Hack West who I decided to
    contact and trust me, Hack West didn't disappoint. He recovered all the lost tokens as well as my coins (bitcoin and ethereum) worth about $231.000 as of then. His charge was moderate and he kept me informed about every step.

  7. We need to stop being fooled by all these brokers and account managers, they scammed me over $185,000 of my investment capital, they kept on requesting for extra funds before a withdrawal request can be accepted and processed, in the end, I lost all my money. All efforts to reach out to their customer support desk had declined, I found it very hard to move on. I was researching and find a broadcast that teaches on how scammed victims can recover their funds, I contacted the email provided for consultation, I got feedback after some minutes and I was asked to provide all legal details concerning my investment, I did exactly what they instructed me to do without delay, to my greatest surprise I was able to recover my money back including my profit which my capital generated. I said I will not hold this to myself but share it to the public so that all scammed victims can get their funds back.


  8. Well I guess life's not fair but it can be more clear when we move accordingly, it's quite painful when someone you love and cared for doesn't feel the way as you do …
    It's happened to my best friend when He have knowing of his wife wayward ways and He need to know the truth to be sure and not make fool of his self ..

  9. My husband was laid off work and we were in debt, I couldn’t pay back on time some of the loans we took and it had a huge impact on my credit score and which came down to 347. All attempts to boost it up were ineffective despite making payments on time. It made life difficult for us until a friend of mine gave me the contact information of a credit adjuster cyberwallfire(@)techie. com who got us through those difficult times and increased my credit score to 802 in 48 hours. I don’t know how he managed to accomplish that but I’m excited and recommended him to many of my friends. If you wish to increase your score, you should get in touch with them immediately.

  13. I saw an opportunity to invest in cryptocurrency about two months ago and I took my chance. I contacted a broker who I saw videos on YouTube and I invested a huge sum of money into Bitcoins & Ethereum hoping to gain a huge profit, while I was waiting and after some weeks, I saw on their website that I have doubled my money. I tried to make a withdrawal as I needed money to foot my bills but the broker insist I continue to invest or pay some money to withdraw my funds, I realize at that point I was being catfished. A month after, I saw a post about SPYWEB CYBER, a funds recovery company and I contacted them immediately, to my surprise SPYWEB was able to recover my bitcoins and Ethereum after I provided the necessary information for them. They were able to retrieve all my money and gave me the scammer's location which I sent to the authorities and these people were apprehended. I’m super grateful for SPYWEB CYBER and wish to recommend them to everyone out there.

  14. I was lucky enough to get in contact with Spyweb, a cryptocurrency recovery company after I lost access to my crypto wallet.

I truly commend their efforts. I understand many people have lost access to their cryptocurrency wallets or sent crypto to the wrong address, I will recommend you contact Spyweb immediately.
