TJL Escaped death by cm's

Today started off a-ok.  I got up as per usual, did a few chores and then had an acupuncture appointment at 11am.  Acupuncture appointment was great.  Only 8 needles (including two in my head, and I have never had them in my head before but it was fine) and some lovely Moxa (oh how I love the moxa).  Grabbed some subway on the way home for lunch, and then got home and was greeted by …

…the farm owners wife … carrying TJL's work boots *gulp*!

When I headed off to my acupuncture appointment TJL headed off on his tractor, with the farm owner, to knock in some posts.  Apparently the last post to put in, and being situated on a hill the tractor began to tip over.  TJL jumped off of the tractor and scurried out of the way and as it came over it caught his head.  He is so lucky that he only got a cut to his head requiring 4 stitches, and a cut to his leg requiring 4 stitches.  A few cm's over and his skull would have been crushed.

While added stress at this time is not my ideal lead up to a blood test on Sunday, obviously we are extremely thankful for this near miss and definitely counting our blessings.  What it has taught me is how much I love, and rely on TJL, and come what may, between the two of us we can cope.  I am so glad that God chose to bless us with a near miss at this time in our lives, so we really appreciate what is important at this time, and that is each other!

Of course Trent is now super sore and it now means I have to milk until he feels better, but it is a small price to pay for having him safe and sound.

God is good!

Oh wow lucky escape! Go buy a lotto ticket!! Man that is my worst fear everytime my Fella goes off on some machinery somewhere. I can't count how many times he's arrived home to tell me about another near miss.

I am so glad to hear that everyone is safe and sound! This sounds terribly frightening.
