Sadness and international box day.......

Today's post was going to be all about international box day but we needed to ask our friends for prayers too. The last couple of days have been very worrying and that is ongoing as we had some awful news on Monday. Our nephew Liam was involved in a very bad accident on Sunday evening and is in intensive care. Liam was driving with two of his friends when a motorcyclist missed a bend and hit Liam's car head on. The motorcyclist went through the windscreen of Liam's car and pushed the steering wheel into Liam. This has resulted in multiple injuries, many very serious. Liam is a very poorly lad and we would appreciate a little power of the paw.There happened to be in the car traveling behind a paramedic who undoubtedly saved Liam's life,along with the air ambulance getting him to hospital quickly, but there is a long way to go before he is safely out of danger. The motorcyclist sadly lost his life.




The post we had planned is now shortened but we joined in below.. Thank you everyone because we know you will all join in with the power of the paw for us...







Love and hugs to all... GJ xxx
