While I was in Missouri, Stormie-the-baby was in a serious, car-totaling accident. Yes-her beloved Toyota Camry (which was getting about 38 miles per gallon in the city!!) got majorly crunched when she t-boned some crazy driver who decided to shoot out of a parking lot on a whim.
Because there was very little reaction time, she really didn’t experience a lot of the stress pain you get when you anticipate a crash. Her air-bag deployed and protected her well. She is, however, left with a badly sprained left ankle and the bottom of her foot is still swelling from the bruising, as it basically took the full impact of the wreck as she pressed in on the clutch at the moment of impact. She is on crutches and in a wheelchair and takes f o r e v e r to get anywhere! It is pretty painful and purple.
We are blessed because they have accepted full liability so she should get paid for the work days she missed and the medical bills are being covered. She is driving a gorgeous blue Mustang rental presently, but will need a replacement here in the next few days. Help us pray she gets a good and safe car with extra good mileage (she drives across the planet to work daily)!
I truly believe she is recuperating extremely well under her mother’s loving care.
Thank-You for keeping our baby safe in a crazy world, Lord! …Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: Get Stormie’s laundry done. :)

My poor, poor car…oh well, at least my body doesn’t look like that! :)
Yes, I am recuperating well under your care:)
Thank God that she really came out pretty much alright. Aren’t you glad there are angels that watch over our families!?!
I agree with your prayer for a good foot/ankle, and a good safe car w/great mileage. Love you, and so glad you’re going to be alright.
I’m so thankful that she’s mostly ok. And I’m thankful that she has a great nurse! I know that makes things get better so much faster. :)
Been there three times. It sucks I know. Does anyone remember my white junkmobile? I’m glad that you are mostly OK and it’s good that the other driver owned up. Here’s to a speedy recovery. The good news is that after something like this you become paranoid and watch other drivers like a hawk.
Wow! “If the Lord had not been on our side….” Ps.124 Love you, Stormie and will keep praying for you.
Those wrecks are always scary but especially when you see the car in person. I pray for protection for my wife and children and grandchildren every day. Thank you Lord.
