Last Friday.

Around 3:30P.M. I was in a head on collision caused by another driver (who was arrested for DWI). Airbags deployed, windows smashed, car totaled, and I walked away with only a few bruises and scrapes.  I was in the drivers seat of this minivan. The police on the scene said it was amazing the car hadn't rolled over, and that there was no explainable reason why the motor hadn't come through the cab and broken both my legs.

I trust in God, and I know that I have Angels watching out for me. There is no other way to explain it.

I am so very happy to be alive and to have walked away.

Praise be to God.

Geez louise! Thank goodness you're ok! Ugh...I really hate people. Is it really worth it to have a few and then drive? Nope, it sure as hell isn't! Idiots...sorry, I just get a little riled up about it. I'm just very happy that you're ok.

I'm so glad you escaped the collision with so few injuries! It's so frightening how quickly something like that can happen, even when you're doing what you're supposed to do. You just never can count on the other person to be doing the right thing!

I hope the rest of your holiday is wonderful!

I am so happy that you are okay! People can be such complete and total selfish freaking idiots. Call a cab or have a designated driver! If you would have been hurt, that driver would have some seriously pissed Thrifer Sisters tracking him down.

Mick-
Wow. So glad to see and read that you are ok. Praise be to God for sure. I know this has got to rattle you a little, especially, just having lost a good friend this year in an accident.
You are here for a reason, my friend. Blessings, Pat
