This has been a hard week
I believe there is a reason for everything.Tonight I went to the hospital to visit an 18 yearold boy. Earlier this week we were in a horrible car accident. We were driving home from a meeting on the expressway going 55. All the sudden I saw a group of people in the road, there was no way of avoiding it, we hit an 18 yearold homeless person. I was in the passenger seat as he crashed into the windshield hitting into my head. I had a mouthful of glass and glass all over me,and was sure the boy was dead. Miraculously he survived being hit at 55 and is recovering at the hospital. I was shook up but concerned about the other four kids with him. I took them to the hospital to see their friend, it has left me a bit haunted with the sight and although this has been a hectic week I felt I should go and visit the boy and let him know I care and am thankful his life was spared. He was surprised by the visit and very grateful that we cared. I looked at him and thought, he is just a boy and he could be my boy.I am so thankful God chose to let him live and I hope that somehow we can make a difference in his life.
