Every decision we make...update on granddaughter

Have you ever thought about how each and every decision we make has the potential to be absolutely life changing? Wow...has that ever been made clear this week for our family. Three giddy teenage girls hopping in the back seat of a car with no cares in the world , never dreaming that where they choose to sit would have a life changing outcome.  My granddaughter {pictured above on her way home from the hospital} was the farthest away from the impact of the truck that hit the car they were riding in that day. Her outcome...bump, bruises and anxiety. The outcome was a bit different for the other two girls that were sitting beside her. "Larissa has a broken pelvis and Dani has a fractured neck/skull, broken jaw, small brain bleed and a severely bitten tongue". Please continue to pray for these girls and the other 7th and 8th graders that were riding in a car behind them and witnessed the accident. We are thanking God for His goodness in the whole situation. Praising Him that it wasn't much worse...praising Him that He was with them the whole time and praising Him that our Allysha will be just fine. {taking paypal payments for a new LARGE stuffed animal for Allysha...just kidding! lol She has had this animal for years and it is getting rather grungy looking...lol}  When I saw this photo on facebook, I wanted to hug her so bad , but had to settle for a phone call or two...and I sent her an e-certificate to starbucks yesterday...she said it made her day *smile* It's the little things...Cherish each and every day and hold your loved ones a little tighter today.

So glad to hear that your granddaughter is home...that's the best place to heal! Praying that her friends physical injuries heal quickly, and that all of the emotional wounds fade away.

Ever since the loss of our wee son, now an angel, we think of these things every single day. So glad she is safe & pray that they all heal quickly.

Big hugs,

How horribly scary! I imagine that even after the physical injuries heal, there will be emotional healing needed. A good reminder for all of us to cherish each moment.

Its so true how life can change in an instant. Thank goodness that your granddaughter was not seriously hurt, and I hope those other young gals can heal up quickly, with no long-term ill effects.
