Saturday morning this occurred while I was on my way with the kids to my family's home in San Fernando.
My car is the Blue Madza and my kids were in the back seat!! I had just stopped at a traffic light with 4 cars ahead of me, waiting for the lights to turn green, when the Green car smashed into me from behind.
From that point on there was alot of screaming from the kid behind, me trying to calm them, and me trying to get my husband on the phone.
Even today I still cannot believe it happened. Clearly the woman who struck me from behind did not see me stopping along with the other cars, clearly she was distracted doing something else than focusing on the road.
So my car was smashed but luckily my kids were fine. I am still suffering from a stiff neck and my son is a little sore but we are fine. This is why I think our Guardian Angle was working overtime... because things could have been worse.
- Earlier that morning I took out the other carseat I use for my niece during the week to make more room in the trunk. If it was there ... it would have plough into the backseat harming the kids.
- I was suppose to pack my sister's Christmas present in the trunk (a large mosaic mirror) to take but the weight of it deterred me. If there... there would have been broken glass flying everywhere.
- Finally just before the hit I was considering switching lanes... if attempted the possibility of the woman hitting on the side with Sydney was great.
So this morning I want to thank God for protecting my family. I want to thank my guardian angle for working overtime to protect us ... and I am thankful no one was harmed in the accident.
I hope everyone is careful on the wet, icy, slippery roads this season.
