I experienced my own Christmas miracle today.

I was in a bad car accident while driving with my kids. The driver went straight through a red light and hammered us. My son (6) was in his booster chair behind me. The door and frame are nearly non-existent now. He banged his head but has checked out fine at the hospital. Dad (me) was sent to a different hospital so as you can imagine, I was a little freaked out. My daughter was in the front passenger seat and is fine.

If you saw the car then you would be suprised that he is fine.

Not going to the same hospital was scary but he was going to the Children's Hospital here which is an awesome hospital. After many hours, all is well. Dad is pretty banged up but all things considered I am as happy as can be. Both of our kids are still here which is all that matters.

Please drive safe. Slow down. And love every minute of each day.

Merry Christmas to all. God gave me my wishes this afternoon.

Canadian Mule,

I am so glad that your family is just fine. What it must have felt like to have been separated from your children at such a crazy time as that!

Just think if this had not happened. I am sure you are the kind of parent (like me) who doesn't take much for granted when it comes to our children. I feel so fortunate to have my girls bickering about who gets to get in the shower first, etc. It sounds silly to be feeling lucky about something like that, but if that is the worst of their dealings with eachother, I feel like a million bucks.

What happened to you today was a fate-driven situation, IMHO. Many people are religious, I am spiritual. My hubby and I have our own 'personal Jesus'. While this might not bode well with many, it is our way of dealing with life. We abide by good morals, ethics, manners, and all-around decency. We don't pray, per se, but we sure do thank a lot. We are very appreciative of our good fortune (albeit just a paycheck that keeps coming), and we realize that there are sooo many other unfortunate people right in our same county, for sure, who aren't as lucky to have their family near. Or to have that paycheck.

I feel that we are all experiencing a Christmas miracle, if we have someone to share each day with.

For those who are not with their loved ones this holiday, I wish you peace. From the bottom of my pea-pickin' heart.

Yes, I am a cup-half-full kinda gal, but that isn't such a bad thing in this day and age.

Here's hoping that you all have a Merry Christmas.

Peace to you.

The miracle of Christmas is being alive.

All these pain killers are not hurting at the moment either.

I may be out for the season with a concussion though. Hope it doesn't end my career because I am still waiting on one of those multi-million dollar deals.

I am so happy my kids didn't get hurt. I took the worst but worth it for all else to be OK. I feel like that Warriors movie but I am all alone and get my butt kicked at every stop especially by the guys with the baseball bats. Feels like I caught a few of those in the head. Perhaps straightened things out upstairs.

You got a blessing today. Not everyone survives a side impact like that, and very few come out without some damage.
Watch yourself and the kids over the next few days for soreness and dizzy spells.

Glad everybody came out ok.

Very glad to hear that you and your children are okay after that. Also bless the child safety seat and defensive safety features of your car.

You are all beautiful people. Meds kept me awake but lights look awesome on the tree.

Beautiful Christmas morning. Joy to everyone.

I do also Hophead. More today than ever before though.

People mention the other driver. He experienced a miracle yesterday also even if he may not realize it. Part of the new me. Allow some others to breathe even when it is against my initial reaction. He was fine and who knows he may still say sorry at some point. I won't wait for it and I think I may have freaked him out a bit when I asked for "one reason I should continue to let you breathe?".

Hope is is fine also. But I do wish quite a headache on him.

Hey James,

I'm very happy to hear that you...and your precious family were spared serious injury.

A Christamas miracle indeed...!

As for the other driver. Glad they're OK and I obviously don't know the whole story, but I think they should be very grateful that their carelessness did not result in the loss of innocent lives.

Very Scary, but a better outcome overall.

The other driver may have had a "human" moment. We all do. He should be grateful it didn't result in any more damage than it did.

People talking on cell phone, even tapping out text messages, eating, drinking coffee, putting on makeup, etc. I don't know how many times a day I exclaim to someone who does not hear me - "Shut up and drive!"
