unbelievable what my 94 year old MIL did this morning.....!!!
Wow. It's truly amazing, we just got a call from my mother-in-law who lives in Ft. Lauderdale. She is 94 and she drove to church this morning, somehow got the accelerator stuck and the car zoomed up over a curb into some bushes and completely FLIPPED OVER.
There she was, upside down.... the priest and the people at mass all came out running... the ambulance men had to cut her out.

And she is ok.


what's also weird is a big board fell down from our sunporch ceiling also this morning, came loose and didn't break the glass table or anything.

It's All Souls day, (or is it All Saints day?) I wonder if this has something to do with souls that aren't at rest. My husband said she was ok coz she was in the church parking lot and God took care of her. Wow.

The LORD is good. I am amazed that she is still driving at that age. I hope that I am still driving once I hit my 90's.

Whoa! There really is someone watching over her.
I had a great uncle that would drive all the way from California to Tennessee each year even after he was way up in his 90s. It would take him about 3 weeks to make the trip but he NEVER had an accident or a ticket or even got lost!

That's amazing! Wow. Yeah, I thought it was getting a little too long for her to still be driving, she drove to get her hair done and the supermarket. We never know how durable we will be...

thanks for your comments!
