Losin it in Paradise


It has been one of those weeks.  I have been hit with just one too many things this week and I am not bouncing back…

Where do I begin?  Well with the most numbing and scary, and awful of course, get it out of the way so I can breath again…..

My son and grand daughter were involved in a horrid motor vehicle accident on Weds.  They were broadsided by a city bus that ran a red light!!!  OMG….just a reminder on how fragile life is and how it can be forever changed in a heartbeat…

THEY ARE BOTH OKAY!   Thank God, my son was driving his Hummer…the cops and paramedics told Clay that if he would have been driving something else both he and Court would have been killed.  As it was the Hummer was hit so hard it rolled…how often do you ever see a Hummer off of it wheels?  It hit the driver’s side and knocked my son unconscious, but Court does not have a scratch.  She did not even cry, she just said, “truck go BOOM”  Some nice guy stopped and got Court out of the truck and had his wife holding her while he got Clay out of the truck. 

Clay was shell shocked and when I talked to him, he was crying his eyes out.  Said everytime he closed his eyes he could see the bus coming, knew he could not stop, and could only think of Courtney….I can only imagine how terrified he was….

I spoke with them all today and they are all fine.  The truck is totalled, but that is okay, my family is fine…THANK YOU GOD!

Okay, I was going to talk about all the other shit things that happened this week to add on the stress and make me feel like I could not breath, but I am not going to now….doesn’t seem to matter….

  1. OH my GOODNESS!!!!
    What a nightmare!
    I am so glad that your DS and GD are fine. Thank the dear LORD what a relief that must be for you.
    You take care

  2. Oh my God. Shuddering as I read this. I am sending you strong hugs, and also to your son and Court and her mommy, too. May you all be able to focus on the joy that they are okay instead of letting thoughts of what might-have-been overwhelm you. I only had a horribly close call once (nearly a head on with a truck) with Caroline in 1991, and to this day, when I think of it, it makes me feel sick to my stomach- and that was only a close call, not the actual thing. My point is, at the time, I couldn’t stop thinking about what could have happened. Even dreamed about it for a long time.
    More hugs….RubyJean

  3. Oh. No. I could barely breathe myself while reading your post. So, so grateful that your loved ones are safe!!! Love to you all –


  4. Much much love to you darlin’ – needless to say I am so grateful that everyone is physically fine.

  5. Everything pales in comparison to the crash doesnt it? Thank God indeed that your precious family is safe. Interesting as well how simple children see things….it made me smile in a very scary post. I am very happy they are ok….and glad they had a good vehicle to withstand the hit.

    *blessings & hugs* things will get better…just keep breathing deeply……..

  6. I was in shock when I read your post. I am so glad that they are both okay. Now, momma-grandma, are you okay?

    Hugs to you all

  7. Thought of you today. Hope all is well and you are taking care of you.

    Hugs, Bobbie

  8. God, that’s so scary! I’m so glad everyone is okay. Scared me to death as I was reading your post. My son called me a couple of years ago in the middle of the night to tell me he’d been hit by a car. It literally picked him up on the hood and threw him into a ditch. He was fine but I couldn’t stop shaking for a week!
