Dear Guardian Angel

  
Dear Guardian Angel,

My most sincere thanks to you for watching over my Dear Son today.  DS was in an accident that could have been, at best, skinned knees and elbows, or at worst, a visit to the ER with broken bones or head trauma.

At a birthday party, DS was in a collision with a kids' electric ride-on car while he was gaining momentum after riding down a mini roller coaster ramp on a 4-wheeled seat.  As I saw the other car approach him, I was too far away to do anything, and wishing madly to higher powers that the car would miss him.  He wasn't so lucky.  He was hit so hard in the front that his 35-pound-light body bounced out of the roller coaster seat from the impact.  By some miraculous intervention, DS landed on the pavement and jumped right up.  He escaped disaster without nary a single scrape.  No blood, no bruises, no tears.  

I, however, was in shock even HOURS after the event. Whatever good I have done to deserve this I promise to keep doing.  Whenever I think of all the other possible outcomes of this accident, I shudder like no other.  I just want you to know that I am not taking this incident for granted.  It could have been SO bad. 

I am forever indebted to you for your act of kindness.

Sincerely,
Me
