*Had an email from my brother this morning. It seems his #2 son was making a left turn out of James River High School on Robious Rd. yesterday afternoon, coming home from football practice, and was broadsided by a van. Van driver just had a small scratch. #2 son has a severe concussion and the burden of knowing he totaled his older brother's white pickup. But no broken bones and no organ damage. A miracle, to be sure, based on the the damage to the truck.
Very scary stuff.
I've been plugging along today, doing my work, and then every half hour or so I'll remember about the accident and shoot about ten grateful prayers of thanks heavenward. My most recent jolt of remembrance brought tears to my eyes, perhaps after finally realizing the full potential of what could have been. A small taste of what his parents must be feeling.
Thank you, God, for protecting my nephew.
