Boarding up the damage. Looking more like a house.

“SAN DIEGO  â€” A suspected drunken driver was arrested early Friday after crashing into a home in Linda Vista.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Capt. Tony Jeffreys told that a young girl was asleep in her bed when the car hit the home, intruding some five feet inside her bedroom.

She, nor the driver, were injured. He was booked into jail on suspicion of driving under the influence, police said.

Structural engineers were called to assess the damage.”


The picture above is our next door neighbor’s house. To get an idea of how close this is to us, that’s my car in the picture. This happened a few feet from my children’s bedroom. (Although the driver would have had to go through both our cars and some bars to get to them.) Scary scary scary. We lost their grandmother to a crazy driver.

For all the surgeries my kiddos will go through while I worry, they are never safer than in their Father’s arms. Not in their beds, not in my arms, not surrounded by ten feet of bubble wrap in an isolation tank (don’t think I haven’t thought of doing that), but in God’s loving arms. That doesn’t mean bad things will never happen, but it means he’s got them. Life is so short and so precious and so tenuous.

Please pray for our young neighbor. Having a car crash through your little pink curtains is traumatizing.
