She Broke



My mom . . . her back . . . hit and run car accident. They hit at speeds at least 2x the limit and ran. Mom lies in hospital with broken back parts waiting for surgery tonight. She walks, she lives, she laughs, she's blessed. (If you can call any part of the event a blessing . . . I think not!) Mom would never want to go on with paralyses and I could not go on without mom.

Love you mom. Love you. When you open your eyes again look at these babies. Remember how they've grown. Oh, those babies. It breaks our hearts to be so far . . .

I'll keep your family in my thoughts. I was once in a similar situation but 6 years later, I'm okay.
Big hugs!
