It’s every mom’s worst nightmare when she picks up the phone and on the other end is a distressed child who has just been in an accident. The last time I experienced this was when Peter called because he fell off his bike while riding in the snow on campus. It was horrible. I thought I would have more time before getting another one of those calls but this morning I got a call from Emma who had just been in a car accident coming home from run practice. She was only a few blocks away when a lady pulled into the intersection at Lexington and Old Ranch Road. Although this accident wasn’t Emma’s fault at all, it was still extremely traumatic for her. Luckily, nothing was broken and the only injury that she ended up having was a burned wrist and shin from the airbag deploying. She was so lucky that was the extent of her injuries. Unfortunately, the RAV4 was totaled. It’s times like these that you thank your lucky stars that the situation wasn’t worse.
