All we can do is look at this with a sigh of relief...

A few days ago I was making breakfast when Den came in and told 
me our granddaughter Emily (in Utah) had been in an accident. 


My immediate question was of course "Is she okay?"

He said she was fine but just shook up.

Then he showed me the picture...
Oh my. 
The roads were very icy and slick. Kim (her Mom) said Emily would 
have gone completely into the canal had she not run into a car 
first....which slowed her impact just enough.  

I told Den, Emily should frame that picture and put it somewhere 
special for safe keeping.....so she will always remember her 
miracle. 

Kind of reminds several years ago when Tyler was driving on those 
icy Utah roads. He came upon an intersection but because of the icy 
road he couldn't stop just as a bus was passing through.

The bus clipped his license plate off his car, and kept on going. He 
was THAT close. We are talking, what? 1/2 inch difference and that 
bus would have got him.

I read somewhere just this week that miracles happen every day but 
we have to look for them. 

Sometimes we don't have to look at all, it's just too obvious. 

This is Emily during less stressful times, although it doesn't look like it to me.

The ONLY thing I don't like about the snow. Driving in it. Glad she is all right! Looks pretty scary! That snake looks even more scary!
