Dear Lord,


Thanks for giving Calvin the skill and presence of mind to keep us safe last night.

Thanks for his ability to know what to do in a bad situation.  For his instincts and immediate reactions.  When the truck turned in front of us and Calvin locked up the brakes on the motorcycle, thanks for making the driver of the truck SEE US finally and come to an abrupt stop with his own squeal of tires.  Just a foot or two away from our left legs.

Thanks for making me feel so safe with Calvin that my pulse didn’t even jump.  I just knew we’d be okay.  Because of You.

Please forgive Calvin for calling the driver of the truck a dickface.  Even though I’m sure You don’t blame him.  I don’t, either.

Thank you, Lord, for giving us more time to be together and enjoy our lives, our friends, our family, and each other.

    Could have been extremely nasty by the sound of it. So glad no one was hurt and you’re both OK.

  2. Jeanette says:

    Glad you’re OK. Life is precious for sure.

    My husband has broken both legs in motorcycle accidents. Both of which were due to the fault of the cars that did not see his bike. We won’t even go into what he has broken motorcross racing. 🙂

    Thank God for Calvin’s quick reflexes and your outrageous luck.

    You live to ride into the sunset another day!

    Holy shit, yeah, glad to hear that you’re okay!!! Great job by Calvin for keeping it on the rubber.

  5. Laura says:

    Jayne and Jeanette – Thanks! Me too.

    Cariskicker – Yeah, Calvin’s got some scary stories about his motocross days. I’m kind of glad he stopped before he met me. Sorry to hear about your husband’s injuries! You can’t control other drivers, more’s the pity.

    TB – Calvin has MAD SKILLS.
