Weekly Wrap-Up: Life's Ups and Downs

Where does one even begin when the week has been touched with something one does not expect to happen. That phone call no mother wants to get. Our dear son had a terrible accident on Tuesday evening. A pedestrian ran in front of the car and there was no way of missing him. The victim badly hurt. Hubby rushed out to the scene. Police and ambulances and tow trucks surrounded the scene. Our son was badly shaken up but not hurt. Thank God for seat-belts. The first policeman on the scene was the uncle of one of our son's friends and the tow truck driver, off duty, was from a panel shop next door to hubby's work. 
We received the most amazing support from family, friends and couples from the church who came over to pray and offer any help needed. Our son was given time off work and he is doing ok. His friends rallied around him and have been there for him. 

The kids have got on with their work and Keren had a full day at her art school doing her practical for the term. There has been basketball and indoor rock climbing.There have been great results for both Josh and Keren... It all seems so insignificant in the greater scheme of things. I have really been struck by the reality of how life can change in a split second and how important it is to really love one another. Its just too easy to take it all for granted...

The week ended with my girl spoiling me and my mum in law and treating us to lunch. 
It was lovely.
 Here's to a peaceful weekend. 

Weekly Wrap-Up


  1. I'm so glad to hear he's OK. I'll be praying for the injured person. You are right. Time is short. We lost a sweet 43yo mama to a massive heart attack in our church two weeks ago. It's so easy to take people for granted. Hugs.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by and the hugs. So sad to hear of the young mama.
