Scenes from the ghetto

It seems silly but this morning was so very stressful. I started the morning in a drug haze of la-la since my knee had been hurting the night before and I took a pain pill. So as the rain fell and fell and fell I just keep thinking about how much the hubband loves the rain while sleeping. I was woken for sure at 5:30 when the many many phone calls came. No info and lots of questions later I loaded the boy and tried to get to work. Here are some snapshots from our car. If you ever see the bayou, you know how astounding this is.
The boy and I had to turn around and go back home after and hour (I live 10 minutes from work) of traveling in and out of water-trying to get to work. At one time I was in the deepest water I have ever been in and I asked the boy to say a prayer. We both prayed and made it out after the car sputtered twice. The boy started to cry from the stress of it all and I decided to give up.
We went home, made breakfast and breathed. At 10, we headed back out and made it. We had 4 kids and 10 adults so all was well.
It is amazing to me that the roads now appear as if nothing happened. I am grateful to Heavenly Father for our safety and the safety of our kiddos. Have a great evening.
