They're All Fine

This is a little bloggy praise to God to start my Sunday morning right. My mom, sister and cousin were all in a minor wreck yesterday evening, but all of them are fine and will be in church this morning. The policeman who worked the wreck told my mother that it wasn't her fault in any way, and she had done exactly the right thing. This doesn't really surprise me, and it does at the same time.

It does not surprise me because my mother is the epitome of the defensive driver. She is always watching the road and other vehicles (and any vehicle being driven by one of her family members in front of her) and sits up straight with her hands at 10 and 2 at all times. She doesn't like to even go the speed limit, let alone over it.

The only reason I'm a bit surprised at the good outcome of Mom's first wreck is that she usually puts her hands over her ears and cringes when she begins to sense unsafe driving in her loving family members. Glad to see you kept you hands on the wheel, Mom!

And thank you, God, for protecting my family. I would be one sad, little soul without them.

Glad everyone is well.

My Mom, to this day, still puts out her arm to protect us kids when having to stop quickly. It was a habit ingrained back in the days when kids stood up in the front seat when you went anywhere.
