It was inevitable. I knew that some day all those stinking speeders and distracted people would hit us while we waited to turn into our road.
My nightmare is that the kids would be in the minivan with me and that nightmare came true…partially. Our daughter was in the second row but my son was at home with my husband.
It is probably best to not share details of the accident but I can say it was not our fault.
I knew instantly that I would have some degree of whip lash since I tensed up, held the steering wheel so tightly and was jolted forward. The most important fact is that our daughter is physically fine and hopefully that will not change .
How I feel does not matter as I can hold my daughter in my arms and see her smiling at me. We feel blessed and that this nightmare will never occur in any degree again.
Oh, the Owl right? The lovely triage nurse at the hospital gave it to our daughter. Thanks Carol.
