What a summer this has been. Lots of pain, turmoil, change, death and loss, and there continue to be clouds on the horizon. My mom was in an accident yesterday. It was probably her fault, though it appears the other driver may have been speeding. She’s okay, or thought she was. I just got off the phone with her and she was in tears. She’d gone for a walk and at one point started to list to the right. Then she proceeds to tell me about a sensation she’d been getting in her face for some time. Considering the fact that she had a serious brain aneurysm almost four years ago I’d say yeah, she should have had it checked out. In any event, she doesn’t remember hitting her head in the accident, but she may have. If nothing else she certainly got a jolt to her neck. I told her to call her brain doc right away and if she needed me to drive down there and take her I would. Of course she doesn’t want me to go to all that trouble even though I’d be glad to do it. If no one else can take her I’ll be heading to Lancaster County for the second time this week. I sure hope she’s okay, but if not it’s just one more thing to add to the growing list of things which have made this summer memorable. Sure am glad I don’t have to carry all of this myself. I take great comfort in the fact that God is in control and is already at the end of it. I just need to trust Him more.
