Way Back When-sday

This is a picture of my youngest brother, Brandon, from about 10 years ago. I don't remember exactly but I'm sure Mama or someone can put in a comment when it was. The cuts and stitches on Brandon's head and face in the picture are from when his head put that hole in the windshield on his truck. What may have saved his life is the extra strong bumper that had been added to the front of it ... that, and the powers above. I remember seeing Mama's face when she was standing beside Brandon's bed in the emergency room and she looked up at me when I came in. I don't know what she would have done if things hadn't turned out the way they did. I post this Way Back picture now at the start of this holiday season to remind us all how important we are to someone out there. Brandon has had a couple of these close call accidents and I'm sure some of you have had friends or family who weren't as lucky as Brandon was. Please remember during this season how important it is to get where you are going -- alive ... and how just as important it is for the people sharing the roads with you to get where they are going.
