Thankful

On Tuesday we got one of those scary phone calls that everyone dreads. My mom and sister-in-law Laura were in a car accident that morning on their way into Brandon. I was relieved to hear that they were going to be OK, but my mom needed about 20 stitches on her forehead and Laura had possible kidney damage and a fracture in her back. She is still in the hospital but is hoping to go home this week.

My mom was driving and hit some ice which caused their truck to spin into oncoming traffic where they were hit by another car. Both vehicles were totalled and when the first RCMP officer came onto the scene and saw the damage, he expected to be reporting 3 fatalities.

We know, of course, what that worst case scenario feels like and so we are so thankful to see these smiling faces...

Jamie, I'm so glad everyone is okay. Such a scarey thing! Good to see you guys on Friday night. I know the guys talked about getting together as families - this would be GREAT. We'll have to MAKE it work before we leave.

Jamie. When I first started reading your entry I was like "You have GOT to be kidding me!" BUT I then I read on and I was so thankful that you did not have to go through that again and that everyone was safe!! That is so scary.
BTW, you have adorable children!! They all look so different from each other! I think Keziah is an Erik look-a-like though.
