Default Count your Blessings

I just got home last night and received a call that daughter,son and son's girlfriend were rear ended on a major expressway by a drunk driver. They wre hit in excess of 50mph. Good news no major damage to the kids. Neck sprain/strain and leg sprains and lower back sprains. Big damage to the daughter's 2006 Pontiac Grand prix. Almost lost my two kids from a drunk driver! I'm not in a good mood regarding those that drink and drive. We'll see what the attny says.

Glad their ok.. Count your blessings is right on the money..

The drunk drivers tend to get my blood boiling too. I lost my aunt,uncle and a co-worker that way. I dont like seeing folks get hurt but I do wish the drunks would recieve it before the innocents. It just never hardly turns out that way. Their bodies are so loose they just go with the roll.
