I Hate These Phone Calls...

"Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly. " ~Author Unknown

Wow, I am SOOOO glad it is Friday! Been a crazy week here, partly because we got a telephone call Wednesday night that one of hubby's students was in a serious car accident, along with two of his friends..

I think teenagers shouldn't be allowed to drive until they're no longer teenagers. And they should only be allowed to drive the speed limit or under and without any kind of music and with no one else in the car. Well, maybe not really. But can you please remind the teens you know that even God's patience wears thin when they drive too fast and get distracted by their friends and TEXT MESSAGE WHILE THEY ARE DOING BOTH THOSE THINGS???

The word is still touch and go on the student. Sigh.

Awww... so sad. I hope it turns out well.

And you're right. My neighbor's DD totalled her car recently when she rear-ended a car because she was -- YES -- Text Messaging! Thankfully, she was only going about 10 MPH, or it could have been really bad.

I love your sentences :-)

Will say a prayer for that student.

Love how you are sharing these sentences. May have to steal the idea for my blog.

I worry about my 17 year old niece driving all the time. She is a really good driver, but she does love to send out text messages. I've never seen her text while she is driving, but I'm sure it has happened. I'll keep the students in my prayers.

WTG on the word count!
