No other cars were invovled. It was just me, a road I know like the back of my hand, the slightest bit of rain and a deep ditch.
I wasn’t texting, talking, eating, drinking or applying make-up. It was just a fluke – an accident. And it could have been so much worse.
Along with being more grateFULL than I can express that I didn’t hurt anyone, I’m stunned by the re-realization that life can turn (and spin) on a dime.
So as I live into the remainder of the Season of Waiting (Advent), I’m going to:
- ALWAYS wear my seatbelt;
- ignore my cellphone when I’m in my car;
- listen even closer to stories people want to share;
- and focus more on Presence than on presents.
Hope you will, too.
