Blessed to be Alive

On Friday last week, I was involved in a collision at 65 MPH.  I was headed south on a four-lane highway, in the right lane, cruise control set at 65, speed limit 70 in a 2010 Grand Marquis.  I was hit, ever so gently, by a lady in a Kia Sorento, on the door and just above the rear wheel well.  She had drifted into my lane as she was passing.

The only apparent damage to my vehicle, and hers, looks like it could have been done by a shopping cart in the grocery store parking lot.  A good wash and wax should take care of most of the damage.

As someone who has persistently struggled with faith, this was just another evidence that something bigger was looking out for me.  I might be mistaken; but, thinking a bit differently makes me appreciate living the life that I have just a little bit more.
