Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful that these two, Michael and Shylee, made it home safely last night.  We are keeping this precious granddaughter for a long weekend and Michael was making the two and a half hour drive home with her when about half way, it started snowing and he slid off the road.  He hit a clump of bushes in a ditch that knocked out the window behind shylee.  Neither of them were hurt and in fact Shylee slept through the whole thing!  Oh, how my heart stopped when Michael called and told me what happened.  When they came home, Michael was carrying a half asleep little girl and I sent up a silent prayer of thanks.  The Jeep will be in for repairs but that's nothing compared to having them home safe and sound.  

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Hello Annette,

    I can just imagine your happy they both are ok.

    I am thankful for the gift of waking up and being give another day to make a difference. I try to do at least one good deed everyday.

    Yesterday, I did two! I let two people go in front of me at the grocery checkout. You would have thought I gave the them the keys to Fort Knox!

    They were so happy...I told them they needed to pass on the kindness and they promised they would.

    Have a good weekend

  2. After the last accident I am sure your hair stood on end! What a gift shylee slept thru the whole thing - thank goodness they were both unharmed!!! He def. has a guardian angel!

  3. I, now, am thankful they made it to you safely too! That would be scary. I'm just glad it all ended with little incident and no harm!!

  4. Shylee is so cute. I am grateful for you that they arrived safe and sound. We had a couple of buses that ran off the road during Monday's snow storm but now one was hurt. My two made it home safe and sound and the other grandchildren did too. :)

  5. Oh thank goodness they are both okay and so glad Shylee slept through the whole thing and didn't have to be afraid!

  6. Annette - I am so glad all are okay - I know how worried you must have been. What a wonderful thing to be thankful for.

    Hugs - Marie
