At 10:50 PM last night I got one of those calls that every parent dreads.
“Your daughter has been in an accident. She is all right, a little banged up but she’d like you to come to the scene.”
Her mother and I quickly jumped into the car and drove the 3 and one half miles up the road to check on our daughter.
She had been in her car stopped and waiting to turn into her friend’s sub when she was rear-ended. The car looked totaled to my untrained eyes.
We took her to the emergence room at the hospital. After a couple of x-rays, a cat scan and a doctor’s examination, we finally left the hospital.
She’s a little so banged up and in a neck brace but she’s home!
At times like these I am reminded of how fragile life is and how gracious Father is in taking care of our loved ones and us.
Things like cars can be replaced but family members can never be replaced.
Father, thanks for watching over our oldest last night. I know you are trying to get her attention. (She knows it, too.) I just pray that she won’t prove to be as dense as her old man is sometimes.
May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven
