harsh reality

So, the last 24 hours have been rather traumatic. My son was present at a party which ended tragically - one of the girls in his grade was hit by an automobile - and is in hospital with serious injuries - we are praying that she pulls through these critical hours and recovers.

It is not my story to tell here. But, the impact is great and wide. The ramifications are far reaching. We have been talking of making good and wise choices. It is hard to see my children struggle to understand and process what has happened. Everything gets put to the side and we just talk and talk. Which is just what needs to happen. I am glad that I am home now so I am available when they want to talk. For that I am thankful.

Lord have mercy.

Yes. Good that you can talk as a family; this is very needed.

My small prayers and love.

Yikes! Prayers for the young woman's healing, and for you and your son.

I'm pleased you can be together to work this through as a family.
