I love this little family!  So thankful everyone is going to be all right.
Last night my brother-in-law and three of his young grandchildren were in a car accident.  A drunk driver T-boned them, causing their truck to roll over.  My brother-in-law sustained injuries, including a punctured lung, several broken ribs and assorted other minor injuries.  One granddaughter broke her hand, a grandson lost a tooth and the youngest escaped without injury.

What started out to be a normal quick trip to take the children home, became instead one of those major life-changing experiences that won't be forgotten.  So many emotions come quickly to mind.  Foremost is gratitude for lives saved and the people who came to the aid of the family, providing comfort and calm reassurance during such a stressful time.  This little family is well loved and there has been such an outpouring of support and love as they deal with this unexpected trial.

It's yet another reminder about how precious and fragile life is.  We cannot live in fear of something bad happening but we always need to remember that the most important things in this life are our family.  There is no place for grudges, contention, anger and other negative emotions.  Today is the day to mend broken relationships.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring.  We should wake up every morning, thanking God for the blessings He has given us and feeling joy for the most important of all relationships, our family.
