It's a good thing I saw this, printed a copy of it, as after hearing some sad news, I made this card this morning. My sad news is that my youngest daughter, a school bus driver who was doing her morning route of picking up kids, was basically run off of the road. The bus had quite a few kids on it at the time. She was traveling on a back county road when a personal van came towards her and wasn't stopping. She pulled over to the side of the road, must have hit some ice, slid into a ditch at a 45 degree angle and hit a telephone pole. She was badly shaken up, and some of the kids were sent to the hospital. She'll be okay, but the intense investigation that follows will have her up tight for some time.
If that wasn't enough bad news, I found out that one of two grandsons that is stationed in Afghanistan was injured and sent to Germany to the hospital there. It seems that my grandson and another army buddy was escorting a couple of reporters to a market place when a suicide bomber decided to blow himself up. Thank God my grandson "only" suffered a severe head concussion, some broken ribs & fingers. It could have been worse, so I'm trying to dwell on the positive, and keep on praying that he recovers okay. I'm also praying that the US Government decides enough of our young armed forces personnel has been there way too long and bring them all home safely and stop this insane war.
I guess you might say, I made this card in my grandson's honor. I hope you'll enjoy and leave a comment. Until next time......
