"Pause and remember every situation in life is temporary. So, when life is good make sure you enjoy and receive it fully. And when life is not so good, remember that it will not last forever and better days are on the way."
I want to start off with by saying yet again why I haven't been ready active in my posting. A week and a half ago I got the worst ear infection you could ever think was imaginable, it brought so much hurt, head pressure, fever and lets not forget PAIN. I started taking medicine for it, thank goodness for family doctors you have on speed dial and that was that, right? Wrong! I got sick from the medicine, I spent all last Saturday night and Sunday vomiting and keeping myself in the bathroom. It was the worst experience of my life to this date, or also, so I had thought.
I had gotten better, my ear was felling 75%, I no longer had any pain or issues vomiting. I felt like almost a million dollars again, so I decided to do my hair Monday afternoon. Thankfully my hair came out AMAZINGLY, like it always does thanks to my girl Katie Jo. Monday night was a different story though, so I got home took a shower, didn't eat too much since my stomach was still not completely 100% and went to my room to binge watch Sabrina the Teenage Witch or Gilmore Girls. But my laptop would start. All I kept getting was a grey screen with a blinking file folder and a question mark. "Great, what else right....?" I spent about an hour frustrated on the hone with Apple, they said it was definitely a hard drive issue. So that was my ultimate dilemma, a un-fuctioning laptop that held my life in it.
Can things get better now??
It still gets worse.
Tuesday I ran a million and one errands and ended up in Memphis eating the yummiest meal at The Cheesecake Factory, of course a chocolate hazelnut cheesecake was included. Duh! I hadn't eaten at this point in almost a week, I was going to devour every bit of it. I also had to go to Target and bring something back. I finally was on my way back to Oxford to get my boots, get my mom her thing she needed from Walmart and home I go.
I almost lost my life driving back to Oxford that night.
I was on HWY 78, also known as I-22 and it had just gotten dark I wasn't in a rush, for the first time in my life I wasn't in a rush. There was so much traffic that Tuesday, of course it's Thanksgiving week, everyone was on the road traveling to go home and see their loved ones for the Holidays. I got on my left lan and not even 5 minutes later, and 3 miles to get off on my Oxford exit, a deer came running into the road, form the median and hit my car. I was going about 75 MPH and I couldn't break since I had someone on my ass behind me. It was a true miracle that person didn't hit me from behind and that I didn't flip from the impact of the deer, swerve and hit the the semi-trucks on my right or anyone else.
I was the only person who was affected by the deer, but that's okay because I have my life to thank for it. Some how I managed to get on my right hand lane and pull to the grass (Father God and his angels put their hands on me to protect me). My car is completely and totally totaled. The hood of my car came off and hit my windshield completely cracking it but protecting be from the deer coming inside my car. The airbags went off, my rearview mirror crashed down and my lights fell down. It was purely a miracle I was okay and not even a mark from the airbags, except for my right arm that is sore and has a small bruise. The police said it truly was a miracle I was alive and without any injuries. I guess miracles do happen.
I never realized the power a car has. I know that it weighs tons and that it's a heavy machine and blah blah blah, what I didn't fully realize that I realized now, is that every time you get into a car its not just to take you to point A or point B, it holds your life. Overtime you get into your car you are putting your life and others in danger and you have no idea what awaits for you. It really is scary, quite frankly traumatizing.
If I've been slacking, that's what has been happening and going on with my life the past week. Luckily everything is fixable and replaceable. My laptop is fixed and ready to be picked up Monday, my car... well they will either fix it or send me a check for the for it, either way, I still have my life. And that is what counts.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with your loved ones, and if you're going through stuff, I promise you it is as bad as it seems. You have your life, you have your family and you have endless amounts of love. That is what truly counts.
