I don't know about you, but I believe in miracles. Around 5:00 p.m. on 8/29/14, a miracle happened and it was because my two daughters lives were spared in a head on collision. Our almighty God had his hands on them and because of that, they are here with us today. Thursday morning Mr.CC and I left home for a long weekend holiday. This trip was all about kicking off the college football season and watching our Auburn Tigers play there first game. We were staying at a friends condo at Lake Martin, so a little bit of lake fun, was also part of our plans. Our daughters were joining us there, when they got off from work Friday afternoon. As they were headed north on the interstate, a truck that was headed south, had a tire blowout and it caused the driver to loose control and cross the interstate and hit my daughters car head on. Haley and Mary Claire, are both very sore and bruised, but the x-rays didn't show any broken bones. They are both going to be checked out again on Tuesday, just to play it safe. We don't have any info about the condition of the other people involved in accident, at this time. I am sharing this story with you today because I want to reach out to anybody who doesn't wear a seat belt...PLEASE BUCKLE-UP!!! Seat belts save lives y'all...just ask my two girls. If my daughters had not had their seat belts on Friday, they would not be here today. They were both told by all the emergency personnel that attended to them, that without their seat belts, they would had been thrown out of the windshield and we all know what that outcome would have been. Mary Claire (Haley was the driver) was able to call us right after the collision and when she told me what had happened, all I could think about was, how blessed I was. Yes, I was extremely blessed that I was speaking to her and that both of my children had just survived a high speed head on collision. To everyone's surprised, I stayed fairly calm. We called our son-in-law and other family members and hit the road toward them. I would like thank my dear friend Rhonda from the blog...Blue Creek Home. Rhonda and her husband helped us load our car and get off. The three hour trip was the longest trip ever for the two of us. We were so lucky that several of our family members stepped in and rushed to the hospital, since we were so far away. We will be forever grateful, to all of them. Also, I would like to express my gratitude to Mary Claire's sweet friend Leslie. Leslie and Mary Claire were talking to each other on the phone when the accident occurred. Yes, poor Leslie heard the screams and collision, as she was driving about ten miles behind them. She put on her emergency flashers, got in the emergency lane and headed to the scene. Another reason that we were blessed. Having Leslie there with them, I know helped keep them calm and we were in direct contact with her. After a close call like this, things change for sure. I love my blog, but I have decided to take a short break from it. I don't know if it will be a week or three weeks, but I will be back!! All I want to do right now is, spend time with my family. I do want to thank everyone who has reached out to me in the past few days. Your prayers have been felt and your comments mean the world to me.
