Gratitudes...

Yesterday, my plans were to spend time working on the secret project, but life interrupted. I got a phone call that Dear Older Daughter was in a wreck. I went to pick her up and call the wrecker service, set up the repair, etc. As we pulled away from it all, I decided she needed to go to the hospital.

She banged her head and shoulder pretty badly, and while she was dazed at first, she seemed to be better. Once we got into the van and started driving, she became dizzy and nauseous. A quick (6 hour) stop at the ER, one CAT scan and some x-rays....we're a tired bunch around here today. Thankfully, Dear Older Daughter has some bruising and is REALLY sore, but honestly, we have so much to be thankful for!!!

We will find out over the next week the total damages to the car. Hopefully, it can be repaired.....and not totaled. Aren't we grateful we have full coverage?? Wow....insurance is really worth it, not to mention the fact, required!! LOL

Off to get a haircut today, and I'll be enjoying some wonderful singing this afternoon. Dear Older Daughter, Dear Younger Son, Dear Friend of the Family and Dear Future Daughter in Law are having quartet practice here at our house!! Yay, I love hearing them sing. They will be singing at a local church tomorrow.....so glad I'll be able to hear them, even if I can't go to the service with them. Life is good.

Happy Quilting!!!!!!

What a scare! I'm so glad your daughter is not hurt worse than bruises, though I bet she's pretty upset. At least she's up to singing today!

Thank goodness the only real damage was to the vehicle . . . . they can always be replaced *s*

Kind of puts things in perspective... I fuss and complain over not getting enough quilt time...Every once and a while God "thunks" me and reminds me of what counts.... Thanks for sharing. Glad she's ok....

So glad your DD is Okay! My niece experienced similar a couple weeks ago and we, too, are grateful she is mending. Grateful!

Sorry about your daughter's accident. To think what could have happened has probably crossed your mind several times already. So glad it wasn't more serious. Good luck with the car.

Enjoy the music!

Oh my! I know the scare you went through very, very well. My son had totaled a car just over a year ago. Both him and my friend who happened to be his passenger were very, very lucky.

Wow. Things really turn around and fast! I'm so glad everyone is snuggled, tucked in and safe.

I hope they sing very loud - belt it out (so to speak!).

Better safe than sorry...I would have gone to the ER too. Hope your daughter is feeling better soon and glad to hear it wasn't more serious.
