Default Lucky eh?

I drove this route with my two daughters and their two friends seven hours earlier...

I dropped them at a campsite, and then decided to take a different route back. I didn't find out about the slides until I got home.

just plain luck. It's hard to believe those trivial dilemmas in your head (eg which route to take) can have such a large impact on your life.

The church that Eric and I got married in had the roof cave in several years ago. It was after a particularly windy weekend, and the family who lives on the premises decided to all go grocery shopping together (usually one of the parents goes and the other stays home with the kids) it fell in while they were gone. The whole church had to be torn down. Heartbreaking. It was a beautiful building with huge stained glass windows. I actually found a site with a picture of it being torn down. http://www.midwestwrecking.com/buena.htm. Our church was trying to buy it from the church who owned it, because they didn't have many members and we had been renting it from them. Thankfully, they turned us down.
