Blessed to be alive…AMEN!

Each day is a blessing and in the blink of a eye it can be gone! Yesterday leaving the surgical center where my husband was receiving injections for his back a lady ran a red light and totaled my car with us inside. We both walked out thankful to be alive. The woman had been given careless, reckless driving. With that said, We both woke up this morning happy to see the sun shining because had that woman hit us just a few inches more either way we both would have been killed or severely disabled. We both are shook up i can honestly say it puts things in perspective, this isn’t my first rodeo with facing death. However, Someone must have been watching over us, that is my husbands words! Myself, i must be like a cat i have nine lives. šŸ™‚ Today i started to think more clearly, yesterday after the accident i was so incoherent the doctor did a lot of cardiac testing because i was depriving my heart and brain of oxygen, resulting in not functioning and understanding anything that was going on. Guess i was in shock. My husband is in a lot of pain today, when we where hit he was screaming in agony it was a horrible sound! If i can give one bit of advice to anyone out there it is, Hug your kids, hug your spouse, hug your parents, your significant other, hug a friend you don’t know if you will tomorrow!

  1. Wow! A great post on your accident and the results and your feelings!!! It makes you very happy to be alive for sure! Dodging the grim reaper does give you a new perspective on life, doesn’t it?? A wonderful message on being grateful!! Hope you aren’t still suffering from the accident. Be sure to stay on your attorney for – Statute of limitations issues????

      1. I am so very happy you are alive, Dearest!! Love/adore that you are a poet too!! Sorry you are still dealing with the headaches and all the other issues too! You told me about the laughing/crying at the same time. Don’t know if you have tried this for your headaches but a lot of times if you can lay on the bed and put your head over the edge, either looking down or up and hang it there for 2 to three minutes it sometimes helps. Try it and see if it helps a little!! I hate thinking of you with a cruel and painful thumpper!!

      2. Ha! With a pounding headache would you really care? LOL! I didn’t think so! It’s worked for me. Cuts it down to a place where it can be helped with Excedrin!! Hope you had a good TGIF!! Working hard? Hope you have a fun weekend planned – well as best as possible with Covid!
