I was involved in a very serious car accident this morning. Involved isn’t quite right. I was at fault.
It was a bright sunny day and I needed my sunglasses. They were on the passenger seat and I looked away to find them. When I looked up there was a car who had stopped (turning maybe?)
Driving about 50 mph and I slammed into the back of her van. Thank God for seatbelts and airbags. EMS, fire department and police were all dispatched. They told me I should not be walking away and should be dead.
I’m more sore than you can imagine. Severe contusion from the seatbelt that saved my life. I’m purple in places I can’t even show off! Laceration on my right shin. And then a second trip to ER tonight because all of a sudden I couldn’t walk on my right foot and it was really swollen. I was afraid it was broken. Thankfully just a really bad sprain.
Bottom line, I have had to cancel most of my week at work and rearrange some stuff. But so thankful I’m here to do it. I’m not an overly religious person. But I do believe in Jesus and know He was taking care of me and the lady I hit. He wasn’t ready for me yet.
I’m pretty emotional tonight. Hug your loved ones tonight and tell them you love them. I’m thankful and overwhelmed by the support of my friends. And I know I have many who are praying for my complete recovery.
I may post a picture tomorrow of my car. I didn’t think to take a picture today. But I need to go empty it out. I’m hoping I can look at it without falling apart.
