Thank You God!

This is why parents start each day praying for the safety of their children. Car ended up upside down in the middle of the road. My 16 year old grandson Nate, who lives with me, was driving and only has some soreness in his chest from the seatbelt and some bruising and cuts on his hand from trying to punch out the window to get out. His 16 year old friend Mike was a passenger and suffered a 4" laceration on his head that went down to the skull but there wasn't even a concussion. And somewhere this morning there must a guardian angel nursing a big headache. Thank you God!

Oh MY!!! Thank God they weren't hurt worse. Puts things in perspective doesn't it? Little annoying things...meaningless. Family...everything.

Boy if that isn't scary I don't know what is! Their lives must have flashed before their eyes.

And this is why I don't want my 16 year old to get her license yet. So glad the boys are okay as I'm sure the parents are as well!

Oh! It was a year ago that our daughter was in an accident. It all came race back when I saw the photo. Stay strong. I know how emotional it can be for everyone. So glad both are recovering.

Geez, Sandy - yes you are right - there are some angels who put in over time on that one.

Sending you big hugs of relief and understanding.

Forrest is 16. He's driving with Bob to Denver this weekend. I am lucky he does not like to drive and prefers to stay home on the mountain. But you know what that means, too: motorbikes and snowmobiles.
