My mother used to tell me, "Never take anything for granted."
With the busy lives most of us lead, that's just about impossible.
Last Monday, we were waiting for a traffic light to change when all of a sudden a loud bang that sounded like an explosion occurred. "What happened?" A pickup truck stopped behind us had suddenly crashed into the liftgate at the back of our minivan.
We were sitting innocently waiting, and the world changed. The driver said his foot slipped off the brake. Because his truck was higher off the pavement, his bumper hit the back of our vehicle instead of our bumper.
It was unexpected to have to take our van into a body shop for repairs. Our plans were changed. Now we have a rental car.
I've been tired (not like me). I've had trouble concentrating. No blog posts written since last Monday before the accident.
Don't take anything for granted. It can all change in a flash.
Any of you had experience with an automobile accident? I would like to hear them.
On a more pleasant note, here are this week's blog sites for authors of The Corner Cafe.
