Carrie Underwood's husband, Mike Fisher, has penned a heartfelt 'thank you' to everyone who's sent Carrie love and support after she broke her wrist in a fall at her Nashville-area home last week. Mike said he's reminded that there are so many good people in this world and also referenced the Bible verse Romans 8:28, writing, "I'm reminded that through our pain, fears and tough times God is with us and He's painting a beautiful story through it all." He then wrote, "Sometimes it's hard to understand why things happen but we thank him and Praise His name in the midst of it all!"

Earlier this week, Carrie tweeted that she underwent wrist surgery on Tuesday and is "doing great."
