  7. Brenda,

    Thank you so much for the card and I certainly wish you a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

    I think this may be the most wonderful Christmas we have ever had. Wednesday morning, on slick streets, our 19 year old grandson, who has lived with us since he was 14 months old, hit a full grown Maple tree in Marshall, Michigan. He was taken to Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo. The police called us and the only information they had was that he had the accident, he was unresponsive and he had been taken to the hospital. His dad, grandma and I drove about 45 miles to Kalamazoo, not knowing what we would find. A terrible time! As it turned out, it wasn’t nearly as bad as we had expected, although he would not wake up. We stayed with him all day and had to leave. Sometime in the night he woke up on his own and had no memory of the accident or a number of hours before that. The nurses filled him in about the accident. Thursday morning we three again went to the hospital. When we got there and woke him, he cried and over and over asked us not to leave him. Believe it or not, we were able to bring home Thursday evening. His only injuries were a bad concussion, although he did not hit his head, a broken right wrist (he’s right handed), three bones broken on the top of his right foot and many scrapes and abrasiions. Today we went to see the car and get a few things out of it. The only word that describes how we all felt when we saw the car is HORRIFIED! The car was a shambles. I am amazed (in the true meaning of that word) that he wasn’t killed. We so thankful and happy this Christmas. We also thank God for seat belts and air bags and that he was wise enough to be using them.

    I’m sorry to have written this as a comment, but I just felt I had to do it.

    Once again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

    • Oh, Lowell. The Lord was surely looking after your grandson. I’m so thankful that he is all right, and I’m so thankful that your Christmas is going to be such a wonderful one. Thank you for sharing this story with us. Merry Christmas to you nad Faye and your entire family. God bless.

  8. Lowell-
    Thank-you for sharing your Christmas miracle story! Always enjoy your stories but, this was the best yet! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  9. Happy Birthday Jesus! and Merry Christmas too!

  10. Lowell, what a “wonderful” christmas mirical, and as Maggie said….. thanks for sharing. So thankful your grandson is going to be ok.

  11. Lowell, I just had to comment, that I’m so glad that your grandson is going to be okay. I also was in a terrible accident but a seat belt saved my life. I also broke my right wrist and have a lot of abrasions. I hit a car that ran a red light and the people in the other car weren’t wearing seat belts, they both died. Seat belts do save lives & they reason why I’m still here today. Merry Christmas Lowell & family.

    • Mary,

      I’m so glad you came thru’ the accident with only the broken wrist and abrasions (although I’m sure you had a lot of pain), but that is so sad about the couple. Yes, air bags and seat belts are such a blessing and they definitely do save lives. As I said before, we had a wonderful Christmas and I’m sure yours was the same.
