To be here today and feel so blessed

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

On Friday Aug. 28th at noon time, I was enroute to see my new grandson, so excited because I was going to HELP my daughter-in-law send out birth announcements and get to spend the whole day with them. It's about a 30 mile drive. 20 minutes into my trip I was involved in an car accident where I was REAR ENDED and everything happened so fast. It was one of the LONGEST day of my life. My daughter-in-law, grandson and my husband came to my rescue and I was just overwhelmed with gratefulness that they were there to comfort me and make sure that all the logistics were taken care of. I was in NO SHAPE to handle those affairs.
It was that evening at bedtime that the reality of the whole day, HIT ME. The outcome of the accident could of been different. I realize that I was able to be home with my family where I belonged, see my grandson grow, and just be part of LIVING LIFE.
Normally I don't BLOG much but I felt so compelled to blog today and that I am here to live life to the fullest.

It's also so strange that I have been MIA on SPARK PEOPLE for the last few days and felt OUT OF MY NORM routine, but you know, I HAVE THE REST OF MY LIFE to keep coming
back here for posting, blogging and staying in touch with everyone.

    Irene, I just saw this Blog dated back in September. I am so sorry that you were in a car accident. I am so happy that you are alive to enjoy your life and your family. Believe me, I understand the feeling of being Blessed with me having cancer this year and getting healed from it. Also, I was laid off from my job in July but I feel blessed that I worked with the children as long as I did. YOU ARE BLESSED! I am so glad that you are OK.

    Wow - I was wondering where you were. I'm so sorry about the accident - sounds like you were pretty shaken-up. We definitely missed you, and we are also blessed that you are okay.
