Thursday morning, an airbag saved my mother's life.

I was in for a big scare that morning on my way to work. I usually pass by my mother's church on my way to work each morning. She usually goes there for daily Mass. Last Thursday, as she pulled out of the parking lot of the church, her car was slammed in the nose - hard. The vehicle that hit her had to be flying because this car was CRUSHED in the front. Though I didn't see the crash happen, I drove my usual route to work, only to see a fire truck, a rescue unit, a tow truck, and a cop off to the side. I saw the license plate on the crushed Buick Century and pulled into the parking lot. Thankfully, my mother was standing and talking and not in the rescue. I was actually able to take her home. The worst she got was a slight gash in the chin. God was surely with us that day!

Thank you, Lord, for giving my mother more time on earth.
Peace from your humble snark,
