This morning I narrowly avoided a terrible car accident. One that would have been all my fault.
I was driving along our quiet street, distracted by stressful things like taxes, housing, newborns, etc. The next thing I knew, I was driving through a red light at a semi-busy intersection, slamming on my brakes to avoid smashing into the driver of a small white car that clearly had the right of way. I came to a complete stop within about a foot of a collision. The other driver made his way through the intersection and I continued on, scared out of my mind, and waving ashamedly to the few witnesses I passed.
Oh. My. Goodness. I’ve been a little more grateful today for life’s little things.
