My husband and I have a special reason for giving thanks this year. On the way home from camping at the beach, an elderly woman crossed the yellow line and came into our lane. My husband was driving and succeeded in swerving around her with the truck without running off the road, however she hit the camper we were hauling behind us. Her car rolled open our camper like a key on a sardine can. One 2X4 from the camper came through her hood, firewall and ended up between her leg and the driver’s door. We ended up in the ditch where the trailer pushed us before it fell over sideways and blocked the highway for about two hours.
Here’s where the thanksgiving comes in: no one was hurt. The driver had a few scratches on her hand and a broken lens in her glasses from the airbag. Our airbag did not deploy – which was good because I was holding my miniature poodle in my arms the whole time. We got out without any broken bones or bad injuries. Even my laptop,with all my research and 40,000 words of my work-in-progress, was completely unharmed even though it was in the camper.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
