It's so crazy how a few seconds can change a life. Had I been a few seconds behind, I wouldn't be writing this. I wouldn't be crying out to God to give me favor so that Todd and I aren't slapped with huge insurance deductibles. I wouldn't be an emotional wreck. But had I been a few seconds ahead - I wouldn't be writing this. I don't even know that I would still be here.
The short story is that I got turned around in downtown Houston, got confused by their streets/lights and ended up colliding into another vehicle. The other part of the story is that I was protected by a mighty God who loves me so much that he would let me walk away without a scratch. I have been completely covered in prayer by friends and family and their love has been wonderfully overwhelming.
I didn't want to write this post. I wanted to pretend that this never happened. But it did and I have been shown love and kindness that I don't deserve. So thankful to be back in my own home tonight. So thankful to be with my husband. I'm just, well, so thankful.
Houston, I forgive you.
