Later today I'm scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and I see multiple posts to another friend, "heard you and the family were in an accident"? Ugh? No response, looked on his wife's page...no posts hmm? Okay, text the same mutual friend that told me earlier today about my young friend going back to the hospital...Yes, it's true. My friends wife and children were indeed in a car accident. There are some broken bones. A lot of bumps and bruises...but they will all be okay. I am some what relieved. Auto accidents have indeed touched my life very closely, having lost 3 close relatives to the hands of others poor driving. I've reached out...hoping to prepare a meal and drop it off when they are ready for it. I got an update from my friend late tonight, a bit more serious than originally thought. There is indeed some permanent damage to his wife's leg. The simple moral of this story DON'T TEXT AND DRIVE!! The person who hit his family, wasn't even looking when they crossed the middle line and smashed in to them.
Just one of those days that make my heart sad. I wish everyday could be full of sunshine and rainbows, but sometimes...they just aren't.
