Hello dear friends!~I hope you’ve been holding up nicely this week.
I certainly have…not! Well kinda.
Let me share a little somethin’ somethin’ with you. God totally spared my life yesterday!
Let’s backtrack to Wednesday night. I basically stayed up all night from 10 pm until 12 pm the next day with my eyes glued to the computer, as I diligently flipped through scholarly Linguistic textbooks that make me feel “grown up” when I read them.
Our class had a final research paper that was due yesterday, Thursday afternoon. Oddly enough, I felt completely wired and awake throughout the wee hours of the night as well as the next day. Then, off I went to drop the paper off at my professor’s office. When I left school to drive back home, I was suddenly hit with fatigue and sleepiness!
Bad idea. I should have slept in the parking lot or done something wise like that.
As I was stuck in stop-and-go traffic on the way back, I found myself constantly veering off to the left and to right because I was dozing off. And the warm weather definitely didn’t help. I know, I admit that it was truly irresponsible of my part.
*Hides in the corner with much shame*
Not long after, I suddenly woke up to the quiet and gentle sound of “click”!
I realized that the gray car to my right was presumably trying to quickly get in front of me, all while I was dozing off and veering sideways. Turns out, they slightly–just slightly–brushed against the front passenger’s side of my car and barely made the side view mirror fold inwards.
You can definitely say that I was freaked out and shocked!
That car moved behind me and I saw the woman hitting the driver in frustration. I assume that we were both at fault, but I have now learned my lesson not to drive when I’m extremely tired. Since we were on the freeway, it was kind of hard to just stop and get out. Naturally, I wanted to apologize and see if they were okay. I mouthed “are you alright?” to them, but they stared at me for a good 3 seconds and just zoomed into the carpool lane and left! Just like that.
Ummmm thank you God?!
I truly believe that He was protecting me and those people from a possibly fatal accident! Perhaps He had His angels lined up just in time to stop our cars from actually colliding. *Phew*
So the moral of the story is…kiddos, don’t drive when you’re tired!
I’ve been loving strawberries!
This morning, Greg and I had the same exact breakfast. I made us some French Toast topped with Sunbutter, coconut butter, chia seeds, caramelized bananas, walnuts, maple syrup, greek yogurt, and sweet strawberry slices.
Usually I find it hard to choose the right kind of strawberry because even though they look super red and smell super good, sometimes they’re just plain sour.
But I can tell that strawberry season is well on its way because my taste buds approved this morning. Every time the seasons change, I tend to get sick pretty easily. Gotta have my vitamin C so I can stay healthy!
Another thing that I’ve been loving is our morning coffee brewed by the Keurig coffeemaker from our wedding registry!
Have a safe and blessed weekend everyone! Learn from my mistakes and you’ll be one happy camper.
Do you have any stories about having your life spared from a catastrophe?
