Exclamation Hug your loved ones!!!

Yesterday my wife, Virginia, and I had a great 250 mile ride on our Harley's. Less than ten miles from home, a truck crossed three lanes of traffic right in her path. With absolutely no where to go, she broad-sided it doing 40 miles per hour. She suffered a broken leg and will be having surgery on Wednesday to have a titanium plate inserted in her leg. Although the procedure is fairly complicated and she has a long road of rehabilitation ahead of her, we feel very fortunate that her injuries were not more severe. We just had our 24th anniversary on Wednesday and I could have lost her in an instant. Don't take your loved ones for granted, life is full of surprises!!
