Last night, just as my son's JV football game was about to begin, a car on a nearby freeway hit the rails and flipped several times. A woman and three kids were injured (my firefighter hubby helped on scene, and says they'll be ok). Then during the second quarter of the Varsity game, a player from the opposing team had to be carried off the field on a stretcher. Those people had a bad day. For real.
On Thursday, without even knowing about my car problem, my 15-year-old son had posted this on Facebook:
"Sit down, relax, close your eyes, and just thank God for keeping you alive and healthy in a free country with a roof over your head, no matter what you're going through."
Yes. He wrote that. So even though I didn't feel prepared to blog today, and even if this post might be riddled with poor grammar and sentence structure, I thought I'd share that with you.
If you're having a rough day, I hope my son's words of wisdom help you as much as they helped me.
Have you ever thought you were having a bad day and then, bam!, you realized your day wasn't so bad after all? Please share!
