So very Grateful..



...to be able to be HOME tonight and safe with my family. Unfortunately, today I was taking my mom and grandmother home and we were involved in a car accident. I had my sweet son with me and it is still all very fresh on my mind just how quickly my life could have been turned upside down. We are so very lucky to have escaped injury and had significant impact on both sides of the vehicle. We are all sore and still a lil' shook up but I'm just so incredibly grateful that the good Lord was watching over us all today like HE always is. The others involved in the accident escaped major injuries as well and I'm also so thankful for that also.

I'm so blessed tonight to still have my family safe and I'm incredibly grateful.

Hug your loved ones,
Cathy

Glad you and your family are safe. Home is absolutely a wonderful place to be. Even if we don't have mansions, when we are sick or sad or hurt, the one and only place we really want to be is Home.

I am thankful no one was hurt. Makes you realize just how things can change in a moment. Hope you get rest tonight.

Hi Cathy,

Doesn't it just make you so mad when something like this happens. Of course we are so thankful that no one was hurt seriously and we do thank God!, but now getting the car fixed and having to get a rental and all the insurance stuff. I know how you feel we have experienced a car accident too, all you want to do is just hold each other tight.
~Big Hugs to All~
