Caravan Sonnet: after the accident

8/26/18

after the accident

I snapped this picture right before I got back in a car today...and had some tears. I don't think I will ever view getting in a car the same way again.

As some of you are aware, yesterday afternoon I was involved in a serious car accident on the way home from lunch with a sweet friend. Unfortunately, a motorcyclist lost control of their bike, came over into my lane, and hit my car... thankfully the motorcyclist is going to be okay but please pray for complete healing for her- physically and emotionally. Her friends shared it was her first ride with them so I am sure this has been difficult and traumatic for her.

I would also appreciate prayers as I am bruised and sore and emotionally... shook up a bit...and still in some shock. Words can't express my gratitude for the kindness of friends and loved ones who helped immediately and were on the phone with me and checking in afterwards and today, strangers (AMAZING people who were so incredibly kind), the rescue crews (who went above and beyond helping people- even changing my tire!!), the police and the ferry crew that came to help.

This weekend, in the midst of sadness in our world, I have been gently reminded of how good people are.

Thank you for your prayers, support, and love and all of the kind messages. Life is so fragile...and I am once again reminded of how precious time and words are. So... thank you...I am so blessed to have each of you in my life.
