So... I'm just blown away right now. As I posted a few days ago, my husband was in a motorcycle accident about 3 months ago. He/we found out about two weeks ago that his work was throwing a spaghetti dinner for him/us. And, so tonight was the night.

We went there, and the spaghetti was actually quite good (which I really wasn't expecting). Something like 400 HUNDRED people showed up for the dinner!! The Christian Buisinesses CARE foundation raised 3,000 dollars for us! Two guys swam 3 miles each and raised another 1000!! So... total from them and lots of other donations, over EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS was raised!! :

And so then, the local honda garage... said that all that money was going to us for a car!! We get to go pick out a car sometime this next week! They're going to have like 10 or 12 to choose from, and we get to pick, and it will be ours FREE and CLEAR! : :

So yeah. I'm just blown away. I don't hardly even know what to think, or say or anything. I'm just amazed. Absolutely, totally, amazed. I mean, he only worked there for like 1.5-2 months before the accident, so, as his boss said 'he must have impressed somebody' But yeah. I just had to post. I just can't quite believe it. I mean, really.... we need another car, so that he can get to work and all that, but just, wow. Just absolutely wow. :

Wow! Congrats on the new car!

And more than the car, is just knowing that people are thinking of you and care enough to want to help you out.
