My husband and I have been season ticket holders for Rutgers University Football and Basketball for more than twenty years now.
In all these years we have witnessed many wins and losses. We have seen many changes in coaching staff. We have seen good seasons and not such good seasons.
We took our sons to games. We’ve taken our grandchildren to games. It has always been a great atmosphere for them to be a part of. Tonight my husband and I along with our cousins witnessed one of the best games we’ve ever seen at a Rutgers men’s basketball game! They beat Wisconsin who are ranked number four in the country.
The atmosphere was wonderful. There were several hundred Wisconsin fans there which made it even more exciting. We all cheered and screamed for our teams as the clock ran down, and the score was close enough that it could go either way. Somehow we held on!
The team played as a team. They pulled strength from each other to get the job done. They showed so much heart tonight. They should be very proud. Their coaches should be very proud. I know the fans are proud.
You have to believe. Good things will come if you do!
Yesterday our daughter-in-law Jen,who lives in Ohio, went off to work like she normally does on Monday. She dropped her two babies at the babysitter and was on her way.
Shortly after she dropped the kids off she noticed a car crossing the double line on the highway and it was coming toward her. It was raining, so the road was slick. She noticed a ditch on the side of the road so in attempting to avoid it her Van did a 180. The next thing she knew, her Van was rolling over down the ditch she was trying to avoid. She heard glass breaking and metal bending. All she could think of was that she was going to die.
The amazing thing was that when the Van stopped, she was able to get out without any serious injuries. She was covered in broken glass and her morning smoothie, but not a scratch! She was disoriented and trying to find her phone when I believe an Angel here on earth came along at that moment. She witnessed the accident and went over to make sure Jen was okay. Jen told her she was trying to find her phone, but the woman told her not to worry, she had already called 911. She stayed and comforted Jen until the police arrived. She gave her statement to the police which backed up Jen’s recollection of the events.
On Mother’s Day my daughter-in-law wrote a moving tribute to her Grandmother on Facebook. Her Grandmother had passed away several years ago. They were very close. I commented how I knew she was always looking down on Jen and smiling.
I truly believe her Grandmother was with her yesterday. She was watching over her beautiful granddaughter and kept her safe for all of us.
I know that God can’t be everywhere. That is why he sends his Angels down to help us out! I pray to God every night to keep my family safe. Thank you God for answering my prayers and for sending us your Angels.
