My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Guardian Angel

Blog prompt: Today is Guardian Angel’s Day. Did you ever feel like a guardian angel was watching over you? If so, what happened?

I think God works overtime with me and has a guardian angel watching over me a lot because I have had many times where things could have been a lot worse than what they were. They could be little things like losing my camera on a cruise ship but someone finding it and turning it in to bigger things like surviving a terrible car accident.

In 2000, we were in a terrible accident that ended up with one person who died. This elderly lady had a heart attack at the wheel of her car and ran a stop sign as we came down the road. My husband refractured his back which continues to cause him pain and my knee must have had some nerve damage because I don’t have a lot of feeling around the skin on my knee. But we could have died and we didn’t. When the lady came across the hump in the road, it made a hole in her gas tank. As we spun around and around together, both cars ended up on the corner beside a gas station where we took out a stop sign. The firemen told us that her gas leaked straight down into the sand on that corner so we didn’t blow up. But the amazing thing is that everyone who has been on that corner does not remember ever seeing any sand there before. I’m so glad God was watching out for us!

And I have to agree with Glynis. What a story. And I know I have a guardian angel, but I don't make him/her work nearly as hard as you, LOL. Glad you came out of the accident safe and sound.
