Mom........... Everyone's ok

Not exactly what you expect to hear when you receive a call on your cell phone from your 19 year old daughter. However, those were the words she said to me when she called to tell me that my mother in law and my son were in a car accident yesterday. After a deep sigh of relief and my heart rate calmed down, I proceeded to ask ok what happen. This is when it temporarily got worse. Apparently, my MIL car was hit by a car from out of nowhere ..... Her car proceeded to spin, a couple of times, deploying both air bags, finally stopped facing the wrong way on a major local street. Both were taken to the hospital via ambulance and observed for many hours. Thank God, both were only banged up and bruised, but essentially ok. My daughter, who was not with them at the time, happened to call my MIL just after the accident occurred. She immediately drove to the scene and made the call to let me know what happened.
It just so happens, I was nearby with another daughter, and was able to get to the hospital quickly.

Today I stayed home from work to keep a close eye on both of them, they are indeed fine. I've spent most of the morning counting my blessings and thanking God for airbags. Without them, the outcome would not have been good. Oh and the car.... It's totaled, but who cares it's replaceable. My family isn't.
