God takes care of babies and fools.

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

I'm writing this blog to thank God for saving my life. What happened to me this weekend has been on my mind since. I have been putting off (for a month now) fixing the hood of my car since my DH had an accident with it. It wasn't major because he is okay, but it left the hood of my car loose and the latch needed to be fixed. I said I would take it to get fixed Saturday morning because I didn't want anything to happen if I drove it. So on Sunday afternoon I wanted to go grocery shopping because I knew the snow was coming and I didn't want to be without food in the house. On my way back from the market I took the highway. I was moving down the highway when the hood of my car flew up and off spiraling into the air. I thought OH MY GOD! I tried to look behind me to see where it ended up and if it hit anyone else but all I saw was it flying over the bridge. So my hood ended up in the Hudson River. I was so scared at that moment that I could have been in an accident or that the other people behind me would be in an accident. I screamed at myself all the way home. Because of my laziness I could have caused a major accident. So I finally made it home and prayed to God for saving my DH and my life and what would have happend to my kids if something bad would have happend to both of us. I know now that you should never put off something for tomorrow that you could do today. I also applied this thought to my healthier living. STOP! being lazy and do what you have to do! The end result is that now I have to pay more for something I could have paid less for if I just did what I needed to do.

But you know what they say...... God takes care of babies and fools.

    Wow...that must have been terrifying for you. It's scary just reading about it. But thank God you and no one else was hurt. I am the worst procrastinator but you're right...there is no sense in putting stuff off. Especially at the sake of safety or health.

    Glad you're ok friend!
