    ;) Let me tell you about my day. We took the pickup to drive 50 miles to look at a Ken Quilting machine to purchase. Well, half way there an idiot pulls out in front of my husband and we nail each other. If we had been in the car, I would not be writing this. My hard head hit the windshield and our truck was a total loss. The guy never looked our way! Needless to say, I never got to see or demo the machine :-(

    I give thanks to God for his guardian angels and their protection over us in this wreck. Maybe I will try again another day!

    Just had to share my day with the board!

    Thanks for all the well wishes. Sunday morning brings a day of thankfulness that we are alive and ok. The meds are helping and we are not as sore as I thought we would be.

    I have learned alot from this board and glad I found my way here! You are so knowledgeable with fabric, quilting and stuff and it helps me, since I don't have Mamaw to ask this stuff from. My Mamaw quilted and lived thru hard times and even thou she lived to be 93, I still miss her.

    I think back to what she told me once when my Papaw passed at 93 also, "You may love your Papaw more, but you will miss me the most!" She was correct, I miss her greatly.

    What would we do without our guardian angels and their protection. Glad you are okay and maybe you can see the machine another day.
