I could not believe my eyes. The car was totalled! I just stood on the side of the road and watched as they dragged the lady out of the PT Cruiser. She was in her mid eighties and was not in good shape. The ambulance wanted to take me to the hospital, but I refused to go. I said I was okay and miraculously, I was.
In the days that followed, I thought about life and how short it is. I thought about how blessed I was that I walked away from that accident. I thought about all the things I had worried about that day and how in the moments after the accident they were not important anymore. All I wanted to do was to go home and see Parker and be with Jeff. I thought about all the things I wanted to accomplish in life and I decided then and there that I was going to do them or at least try to do them.
The most important thing I learned was that your life can change in the blink of an eye and you should always be ready to go. You should always make sure that your family knows you love them and know that you lived your life the best way you knew how.
I am so thankful that five years later, I am sitting here sharing this story with you. Things could have worked out very differently had God not been watching over me that day. I will never forget that day and I will always try to be grateful for every single day I am given.
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as you can. Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on Facebook. I would love to see you there too.
