The first thing that was in my mind after reading this Belle was "What did your son learn from his dip ?"
Happy he is safe, for both your sakes.
You sound like a good mom to me.
What Unseen said! :)
I am sorry to hear what happened and glad your son is OK
Then about the God thing, well were you brought up in a religious family ?
O.k, thanks, I just wondering because sometimes when people are brought up in a religious family, and they escape that and become atheists, when experiencing traumatic events they refer back to those taught beliefs.
Its a pleasure and thank you
I remember when I was a kid, getting hit buy a car, being thrown over 30 feet and landing back on the curb. I didn't pray. That was not my first thought. However, being a mother, I can understand why you would say, "Thank God". Most of, during our lives, have been conditioned to think that way and it is an automatic response and perhaps makes you feel better. I am glad your well and your family is fine. Natural occurrences and accidents happen every second of every day. How man of us on here, stop and say " Thank God" for some reason or other. Is it not unlike saying something, "Drop dead," when you're angry at someone. Like a brain reflex. You don't mean it but you are temporarily appeased. :))
Thank God! Thank Heavens! They are boilerplate exclamations and only mean something if they actually mean something to the person who utters them.
