Daughter’s jaw quickly healed

Our two daughters grew up in rural New England. They loved climbing in trees, riding horses, and playing rough sports like hockey and soccer. Bumps and bruises were ordinary occurrences and quickly forgotten.

One day, when my younger daughter was seven, she was riding her bicycle down the hill our home was set on. The brakes were applied by pushing backward on the pedals, but when the wheels began to spin too fast, she was unable to put her feet on the pedals to slow down. From inside the house, I saw her as she flew over the handle bars and fell, landing on her face on the dirt road.

Our children—safe in Love
