Hello dear friends!~I hope you've been holding up nicely this week. :) I certainly have...not! Well kinda.
Let me share a little somethin' somethin' with you. God totally spared my life yesterday!
Let's backtrack to Wednesday night. I basically stayed up all night from 10 pm until 12 pm the next day with my eyes glued to the computer, as I diligently flipped through scholarly Linguistic textbooks that make me feel "grown up" when I read them.
Our class had a final research paper that was due yesterday, Thursday afternoon. Oddly enough, I felt completely wired and awake throughout the wee hours of the night as well as the next day. Then, off I went to drop the paper off at my professor's office. When I left school to drive back home, I was suddenly hit with fatigue and sleepiness!
Bad idea. I should have slept in the parking lot or done something wise like that.
As I was stuck in stop-and-go traffic on the way back, I found myself constantly veering off to the left and to right because I was dozing off. And the warm weather definitely didn't help. I know, I admit that it was truly irresponsible of my part.
*Hides in the corner with much shame*
Not long after, I suddenly woke up to the quiet and gentle sound of "click"!
I realized that the gray car to my right was presumably trying to quickly get in front of me, all while I was dozing off and veering sideways. Turns out, they slightly--just slightly--brushed against the front passenger's side of my car and barely made the side view mirror fold inwards.
You can definitely say that I was freaked out and shocked!
That car moved behind me and I saw the woman hitting the driver in frustration. I assume that we were both at fault, but I have now learned my lesson not to drive when I'm extremely tired. Since we were on the freeway, it was kind of hard to just stop and get out. Naturally, I wanted to apologize and see if they were okay. I mouthed "are you alright?" to them, but they stared at me for a good 3 seconds and just zoomed into the carpool lane and left! Just like that.
Ummmm thank you God?!
I truly believe that He was protecting me and those people from a possibly fatal accident! Perhaps He had His angels lined up just in time to stop our cars from actually colliding. :) *Phew*
So the moral of the story is...kiddos, don't drive when you're tired!
I've been loving strawberries!
This morning, Greg and I had the same exact breakfast. I made us some French Toast topped with Sunbutter, coconut butter, chia seeds, caramelized bananas, walnuts, maple syrup, greek yogurt, and sweet strawberry slices.
Usually I find it hard to choose the right kind of strawberry because even though they look super red and smell super good, sometimes they're just plain sour.
But I can tell that strawberry season is well on its way because my taste buds approved this morning. Every time the seasons change, I tend to get sick pretty easily. Gotta have my vitamin C so I can stay healthy! ;)
Another thing that I've been loving is our morning coffee brewed by the Keurig coffeemaker from our wedding registry!
Have a safe and blessed weekend everyone! Learn from my mistakes and you'll be one happy camper. :P
Do you have any stories about having your life spared from a catastrophe?
