This morning, while driving to Ebenezer’s treatment, an incredibly scary thing happen. I wasn’t sure I wanted to share this, as I’ve tried so hard all day not to let it effect me, because I want to be strong for my family and not show how hard it was and how scary it was. I try to down play it, because I don’t want to sound dramatic, but, it was terrifying. .
We were driving on the freeway, when suddenly a small car started to change lanes (on a curvy area of the freeway) the driver misjudged the curve and hit the semi truck. I was directly behind them both, and as they hit, the car flipped and smashed the back of the semi. It felt like the slowest moment in my life... it was happening so fast my brain was trying to process. In a split second I had to decide what I was going to do. I could tell the way the car hit the semi that if I didn’t back off we would be hit hard. My first instinct was to slam the breaks quick and throw the truck into reverse. That’s what I did, and as the truck backed up quickly, the car flew past the hood of my truck and hit the guard rail. As I processed what just happen, I realized we could have just died. Right there. Gone. I can’t even allow myself to think about what almost happen. Tonight I just feel sick, and emotional. I am trying not to show it but I’m telling you, I can’t unsee what almost happen to me and two of my babies. God was watching us, and I am so grateful for life, and his grace upon us. Thank you Lord for giving us what we don’t deserve.... Your love, and mercy.
