Today I am Grateful for Miracles!!

I woke up this morning and found out that my little brother (now 22 years old) was in a horrible accident last night.

He was driving home on the freeway to college and fell asleep at the wheel. He hit one of those orange constructions water cylinders going 70 mph, totalled his car, deployed the airbag… but miraculously was un-harmed other than a broken nose and slight concusion. He was wearing his seatbelt, but I believe that there must have been angels inside that car with him. Because I have no idea how he survived.

Today, I am grateful for miracles! And so incredibly grateful for a brother who is still alive!

  4. This made my heart ache. I am so glad that he is ok.
    I lost my sister in January so I know the pain of losing a sibling and I am thankful that you don’t have to go through that.
    Wishing him a speedy recovery!

  7. Miracles do happen every day, just not always so obvious! Thank the Good Lord for your miracle. One of my sons was killed in a car accident 25yrs ago and that hole in my heart will never heal. I am grateful we were all able to be with him at the hospital until he died. Several in our family, including myself 3yrs ago, have survived serious accidents, etc. Heavenly Father has been very good to us! I am so glad for you and your family that your brother is ok!

  13. Angels were watching over him as well as others on the road. A friend from highschool and her family, as well as my sister’s father-in-law were killed in car accidents invovling drowsy drivers. I’m happy your brother is going to be okay, let’s make sure no one else gets behind the wheel when they are too tired to drive.

  18. YES and AMEN! My son was thrown 70′ from a car (re-ended on side of hwy when he was putting on his seatbelt before getting back on hwy) and survived (24 or so at the time) in much the same way as your brother. Pat (son) not only survived but, didn’t have the type of serious injuries that follow landing on his head (bleeding trauma) and shattering his femur, throwing blood clot into lung, etc – to include the normal outcome of not surviving. Your brother is truely blessed and as I told my son – God has a plan for him. Tell your brother to hang in there, take it easy and do something my son my son didn’t – take time to heal and don’t push too hard. Take care!

  24. Glad he is okay and that you are blessed to have him in your life. My brother (23 yrs old) was killed in a car accident 3 weeks ago and I wouldn’t wish that pain on anyone. It makes you take a second look at life and realize that every moment is special and you never know when they won’t be there anymore. Take every opportunity to spend with your family because we never know how long they will be with us! So grateful you get more time with your brother!

  26. I too am glad for miracles because I am alive today because of many miracles. I too was in a serious accident that I was told I should have died at the scene, but that was 9 1/2 years ago and I am well and truly grateful for miracles. I wish your brother and your family the very best and we will pray for his speedy recovery. Miracles are all around us and I think many times they are for us as wake up calls to see how fast live can change and the hand the Lord has in our lives. Thanks for all you do even when times are tough for you.

  29. So glad he is ok. So scary! Tell him this truckers trick for not falling asleep at the wheel: sunflower seeds. For some reason the action of eating them keeps you awake. I was always sleepy eyed on long drives but haven’t had a problem since.
    Happy for the protection of your brother. 🙂

  36. That is truly a blessing. I am so glad he is OK. My sister, and her 3 children just had that happen when they hydroplained. They flipped her truck hit 2 trees and walked away with just scratches. She credits being in a huge Suburban for saving her. I drive a mini van and the officer told her they would have all died if in a mini van. I truly believe we have angels watching out for us and someone was with your baby brother.

  40. I’m so glad he wasn’t hurt worse. My 2o year old son fell asleep at the wheel and hit a telephone pole head on and then broadsided a tree and blew out all the windows except one when both airbags deployed. He was lucky that when he hit the tree it was in the section between the driver door and rear passenger door connect. He only had a slight concussion. It has taught me not to drive tired which I did quite regularly. I’m so glad his guardian angel was watching over him and God felt his time on this earth was not over yet.

  42. Oh my gosh, that is so scary! I’m the same age as your brother, and falling asleep at the wheel is one of my biggest fears going back and forth between Provo and Boise/LA. I am SOOOOO glad he’s ok!!!!! Our prayers are with him for a speedy recovery!

  43. I am glad that your brother is ok. I understand the drama with that and it is amazing how it reminds us how fragile life really is and to be grateful for each other. I totaled my car a month ago and no one was hurt. I got a small yellow bruise from the seat belt that showed up 2 days later.

  46. Wow! What a miracle indeed–perhaps what we could call a ‘tender-mercy’ of our Heavenly Father. I’m so glad he’s ok & I’m sorry for the stress it must be causing you! Hope your pregnancy is going will btw.

  49. I got chills when I read this. I’m so happy your brother is fine. Almost 5 yrs ago I was driving, with my husband and 3 kids at the time, from Colorado to Utah. At 1 am, I fell asleep at the wheel. We ended up upside down. Miraculously, only one of us was hurt, and it wasn’t too serious. I believe in miracles. I believe in angels.

  50. In August my husband fell asleep at the wheel while driving. He hit the only guard rail on the road for miles. Saved his life! His car brushed the side of the guard rail and messed it up pretty bad. He said if not for the guard rail he probably would have rolled. I too am grateful for miracles.
