Our Angel Is Watching Over Us

On Monday 13th October, Skyla's Birthday, my mum and dad went down to our holiday house as we are getting new tenants for the house. On the Tuesday 14th October they headed off into town to do a few erands. To get into town they have to drive on the highway. On there way, they were doing about 90km p/hr when all of a sudden a car coming the other way spun out of control doing about 100km p/hr and right into them. They had no time to move out of the way. The car was ridden off as was the other car. They were both ok, thank god. My dad seriously thought that that was it. Their time was up. He cant believe they escaped with no injuries. The other driver was a 23yr old who escaped serious injury too. They were so lucky. Thankyou bubba so much for watching over nanny and poppy. You really are our guardian angel. Love you hunny. Miss you so much. Love mummy
