Every day is better...

Entry #33

As I sit at my computer this morning, I am yet again lucky to be alive. 

 

Coming home last night on the freeway I was nearly wiped out by a drunk driver.  He came so close to rear-ending me and then over-corrected into the median. Bounced off and swerved back and forth in front of me and then went up onto the shoulder embankment. Dust flying he came back down in front of me and his car spun on it's nose before coming to rest across both lanes.  When I came to a stop I was only a few feet from him.

 

I couldn't get over all the debris that covered the both lanes of traffic!  Crap from inside his car, parts from the car, and all the dirt and pine needles from the roadside.  I had a taste of what it's like to be in a NASCAR wreck...I couldn't see through all the dirt and just kept braking and praying I could stop before hitting him.

 

He actually stumbled out of his car laughing about it.  You could smell the alcohol on him from 10 feet away.  Stupid man!  He had to have been going 90+ mph!  He could have killed who knows how many people and he's laughing and unhurt!  Made me so angry!

 

As I was driving before the near accident, I had been thinking about my uncle who had Down Syndrome who passed away nine years ago.  March 16th would have been his birthday.  He LOVED his birthdays and all the cards and dollar bills he would get.  He talked about his birthday coming all year long.  I know he was my guardian angel who kept me from harm last night.  I would like to think Ken had a little something to do with it as well.

 

Kiss and hug those you love!

It will be 13 years ago on 10/4 when my boyfriend chose suicide as a way out too. Thank you for sharing! ~ peace, love & light.

Ken's choice was not in anyway your fault. My step father of 33 years decided to hang himself at the age of 91. Heartbreaking, the grief is different- as stated
