PRE-NOTE: Friday evening we got a telephone call about a very serious auto accident involving Grandson Ben and Son/son-in- law David. Ben was air-evac’ed to Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis. This is written on Sunday afternoon, May 27.
“What a difference a day makes…”, a long ago tune, keeps running through my mind.
Friday seems so long ago, when the lives of grandson Ben and Dad and Mom David and Robin and so many others changed instantly. At that intersection in western Minnesota, one single second would have made a huge difference.
One single second.
I’ve just returned from the hospital. Those with an interest can check in on Ben Menier. I notice there have been over 1,700 visits already. There will be time for individual visits later.
I’ve passed along all of the comments made by you – 40 so far. Thank you so very much.
A couple of other favorites of mine come to mind today. Louie Schwartzberg’s short film on Gratitude is one I highly recommend.
Another is “The Station“, which Ann Landers liked so much she reprinted it from time to time years ago. You can read it here: The Station001.
Ben and David and Robin were together in Ben’s ICU room yesterday afternoon. As I write Ben is in surgery, another step towards a hoped for good end to an event no one could have anticipated.
At best, his will be a long haul, with uncertain end.
For those who follow my blog, here is my offering for Memorial Day, 2018 written prior to the accident.
