I say you are my secret family because although I have written a bit on here, I usually just lurk every day and  keep tabs on all you crazy people. (.....like I have any room to talk Grin)

I would like to share this with you.

On Halloween night at 7:15, my wife and daughter were involved in a head-on collision. My wife was going 55mph and the other car was doing about 35mph. (he grazed a few cars before hitting my wife and child, and that slowed him down) He was in my wife's lane.

The other car was driven by a man with open alcohol containers in the car.... I have yet to learn of his condition officially but I suspect he was drunk by the way he was driving. I will know soon enough. He was fine.

As you can imagine, both cars were totaled.

You are probably wondering about my wife and girl and this is what I want to share. My wife and girl walked away from this accident without a single place on either one of them that you justify putting a band-aid on. Not a single scratch that drew blood. Sure, the airbag knocked her for a loop and the seat belts bruised her chest and hip a little and my wife got a bruise on her elbow and the hospital took all weekend deciding they were fine.......but instead of planning their funerals I am hugging their necks.

If you came to me with the "top ten most convincing arguments that God does not exist" ...........I will show you two reasons why I think he does.

My wife and child.

Alive and well.

Rejoice with me,
Even if I have never met you, I will hug your neck and lift your spirits with the joy in my heart. Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Glad the family is OK. That had the potential to be horrific. I hate driving on holidays, way too many drunks out there. Give them a hug and tell them you love them every chance you get....they are gifts.

Wow, what a terrible thing to happen but with a great ending. Glad everyone is OK!

I also hate driving during this crazy time of year, lots of party people on the road that shouldn't be. Angry

 Hugs to everyone from Becky and Paul.

That sort of news will surely stress your soul!  Great to hear all is well!     
As Nusa sez, airbags and seatbelts are modern marvels!   
BTW, Chazwood, you take in a couple bus rallys and there won't be any secrets!  I'll guaruntee!  Wink
