I was on my way to work this morning…feeling good…
It’s Friday after all.
Traffic was light, good music was playing…it was a great start to my day.
I pulled off the highway…and traffic was at a stand still.
It seemed that an accident had just happened to the left of me.
It didn’t look good…and I felt badly for all involved…and carried on with my drive.
I wasn’t moving.
I was in a shit load of traffic for what seemed to be no reason.
I started getting annoyed…god knows I am not the most patient person in the world.
I was in a hurry, I had a lot to do at work and needed all the time I could get.
After an hour of being stuck on the same street…I realized there was another accident right at my intersection.
I don’t know if anyone got hurt…but by the time I got there, it didn’t look too serious.
So I go back to being annoyed. I am an hour late for work…my blackberry won’t stop going off…I haven’t even poured my coffee yet.
When did this day get so rotten?
I sat down and my personal cell keeps going off. Not one, not two, not three…but four people are texting me…
All asking me if I am ok.
All asking me to text them back as soon as I get their messages
Where the hell did that come from??
I learned that a lady had died in the accident I had driven by.
My friends that texted me know that I travel that way to work and were concerned…
And I was annoyed that I was late for work, and wanted coffee.
A young woman lost her life.
I am incredibly blessed to know that I have people in my life that care this much about me to make sure I was ok.
No matter how bad of a day you think you might be having…always remember, someone else has it worse.
So much worse
Count your blessings. I know I did.
