I always take the same route to work everyday, but this time I decided to change it up a little since I had a weird schedule today. Every time I drive to work, I see the same homeless man on the corner of this intersection; but I never end up on the same side of the street as him. I decided to take a different route to work today, and this time I was on the same side of the street as the homeless man. I keep granola bars in my car from when I’d given them out to the homeless; but lately I’ve been packing my own lunch because I’m broke as a joke, lol so I had a pretty good, healthy lunch with me. W/o a second thought, I put my car in park & stalled traffic to give him all of the food I had, since I didn’t have anything monetary to give him. The man was actually really happy that I’d given him healthy good food to eat, and thanked me with a, “God Bless You!” I was almost late for work, but seeing this man’s face light up, really took the edge & stress of work off of my mind. Now I’m sitting at work, broke and physically hungry lol, but my spirit is full & I am absolutely content. ☺️
This morning I was 2 ft away from being crushed by a huge semi-truck on the way to school on NB I-405. I had a horrible gut feeling about this semi-truck a few miles back before my exit, and I decided to get past this semi-truck. The driver seemed to be having trouble merging lanes, in an effort to pass a “slow” sedan he was tailgating for a good 5 miles. After I passed the semi-truck he was able to pass the slow driver, and now able to tailgate me… 2 miles passed and I was preparing to exit the highway, and as I looked in my rear-view mirror, I see smoke coming from right behind me. Out of the smoke the tailgating semi-truck jerked left, then made a full 360, hit a couple cars in the process and flipped. I thank the Lord that I’m in one piece and not under a huge semi-truck nor in the hospital. I couldn’t believe how close of a call that was! I am so grateful that I was able to avoid the crash, and I hope that no one was badly injured. Just goes to show, you never know what could happen, so never take life for granted!
No matter what the obstacle, we will always remain.
