Tender Mercies

Sunday - November 11th, 2007

Today was Ron's 45th birthday and Chace's 16th. I'm so thankful for these two special guys in my life. They are so much a like in so many ways. That will definitely be a blessing in Chace's life, because his Dad is pretty awesome.

We certainly witnessed one of the Lord's "tender mercies" in our lives today. We had a Tri-Ward Fireside for the youth tonight and then Nolan and Hannah came over to play cards. Kim was still at work late at the Hotel, so they all hopped in Nolan's car to go check on her and see how much longer she was going to be. On the way back from the Hotel, they took the corner by the Library "a little" too fast, went off the shoulder of the road, and when they came back on, they ended up landing right between two trees. Air bags deployed and the car is probably going to be totalled. Nolan had a couple of burns on his wrists from the airbags and a little cut on his forehead. Chace and Hannah didn't have a scratch on them. As I took pictures this morning, I realized all the "what if's", especially as you see the much bigger tree just a few inches away. They were all luckily given a 2nd chance and will hopefully vividly remember this and drive more carefully. We certainly got on our knees and thanked Heavenly Father for this blessing.

Its obvious to me. Youve changed your blog address and not invited me. Yep, your probably posting daily and I just dont know about all the crazy happenings at the Tenny house. Sad. Oh well, at least your blogging still - right?
