Reflections~





Thanking our Heavenly Father that He was indeed with our oldest daughter 3 weeks ago.  I want to thank you all for your heartfelt prayers and concern after her horrific car accident.  God was surely watching over our baby girl that night, as her truck (a Hummer) was a mangled mess, yet she was able to walk away on her own accord.  She is on the mend, and we thank Him every day for surrounding her with angels both here on earth and in Heaven that evening.  Those who risked their own lives on that dark stretch of highway that night to make sure she was okay and brought to safety we will forever be grateful to.

Just a reminder to hug those you cherish and tell them you love them!  She had just left our house after spending the evening with us, and was headed home to her apartment.  We never thought we would receive "that" phone call.  Our days are not guaranteed here on earth, spend them wisely.

Lauren, I missed your post about the accident...will go back and read it. My heart sorta fell and my stomach rolled reading this. Too much like Abby's accident I think. I thank God and all His angels for protecting your daughter! Will continue to pray for her perfect healing ~
