Along the Way

Remember yesterday started like this for me.
What a great surprise!!!

Well, somewhere along the way this happend! Another little surprise........

Now in case you are wondering exactly what this is, this is what a portion of my car now looks like.

While sitting at a stop sign on my way home, ready to make a left turn toward home this happened. A little red SUV was coming around the curve slightly on the fast side, as she went to make the turn she lost control and came straight into the side of my car.

Needless to say it was a little scary. I saw that she had lost control and was coming straight for me. I was afraid she was going to hit my door. I had put the car in park and was trying get out of my seatbelt to move to the other side and avoid the hit, when her vehicle hit towards the tire and just above my door .

Afterwards I came home and had to have a few of these. One a day is usually my limit, but not today!

As I wait for the insurance adjuster to call today, I am clearly reminded of God's protection for me. It could have been much worse and instead was just a fender bender. Please pray that our car is not totalled. I know it looks minor, but where it hit has caused the car to drive a little odd and because we drive a vehicle forever it is not worth much. The insurance could end up totalling it because that might be their cheapest way out, but not for us. My husband has reminded me that this did not catch God by surprise and He has a plan for us, as a matter of fact it is a good one.......Jeremiah 29:11.

I have rambled long enough today. I hope each and every one of you has a blessed day!

I am glad that you are is probably better not to see it coming...I would have been so scared, too!

You are right about the car maybe being totalled by the insurance company. This past winter my husband was going down the hill on our street and he slid right unto one of our neighbor's lawns, hitting one of their huge boulders they have in front of their lawn...he sort of just skidded along the rock on the driver's side of the really didn't look bad at all and he was fine....but...the rear passenger air bag went off...and apparently that was a big determination for them totalling the car, because those are expensive to replace, I guess.

So...he now has a newer car, not new, but newer, and he is maybe it worked out for the best, but the other car was almost paid off and was a little better on it would have been nice if they wouldn't have totalled it. Oh well!

It's always something, right?

I hope you hear good news from the insurance folks :)

Glad you are safe. That is never fun. I do not like SUVs. People think they are safe but they are not.

Hi, I'm just visiting for the first time. Love your blog so far! Sorry 'bout the fender bender. That happened to me not too long ago. It turned out being a blessing tho'. I, too, drive my cars until forever. (I drove my last car 17 yesrs!) Anyway, my minivan had quite a few nicks and scratch marks on the back fender, and was looking pretty bad...but then I got rear-ended, and the insurance of this poor, little college girl paid for a complete re-do of my back lift-gate, fender and lights! Now the back of my van looks brand new! The insurance also paid for my rental car, which was a Dodge Durango SUV. That was fun to drive for 2 weeks! Anyway, hope your bender turns into a blessing too! I'll come visit again!
