A Blessing and a Dead Deer!

Dear Friends, We have once again been so blessed.  Our never-ending saga continues. Well, maybe I should just say that when you have 3 girls driving it seems there is always something. Our middle daughter was coming home from work and a deer jumped over a guard rail and right into the path of her car. She was going to fast to stop and the car took a major hit.
 The poor deer didn't make it but thank the Lord our daughter was safe and not hurt.
Here in Ohio when the farmers take the wheat off the deer begin running, I mean thousands of deer start running everywhere. The accidents are daily but this is a first for us.
So we are waiting to see what the insurance people say but in the mean time we are without a much needed car. We will just have to make due somehow!
  I am still stitching on Tis the Season and it is looking much better. My Mother is enjoying the progress too. She has been having some good days and we are so blessed by that. Thank you for your prayers and kind thoughts. I will be back soon with some new pictures!

This happened to my husband a couple of years ago and he said it was the MOST terrifying thing he ever experienced. Thank goodness your daughter is ok!

Oh my. I'm so glad that your daughter is okay after this major hit. She must feel so sorry for the deer, and the car, and the trouble. I can only imagine.
Well, you didn't need that, Dianntha. :(((
But it could have been worse. :)
Take care.
