Hug your kids!

So you think you have them safely through the scary years. But it doesn't matter how old they are they can still drop your heart. Daughter #2 and her young man (both 19 an non-drivers) were traveling across town last evening in a car driven my the young man's father. Dad had a completely unexpected brain seizure in traffic- daughter in the front seat had the presence of mind to recognize quickly what was going on and pull the parking brake- hard! Other cars managed to avoid them. They were less than a minute from being on the freeway, on the bridge crossing the Willamette river where the parking brake would not have helped. Dad is ok, after a CAT scan. I got that weird call where perky voice child says "Hi mom, were at the ER".
Proud and grateful, I am.
