Wow this gives me shivers. I can’t imagine my life if we had lost you in that accident. Anytime I feel my gratitude for you in my life slipping, I’ll look at this post.
…Wait… ok is that morbid?
Holy #@&^!!!: Was driving to Slave Lake Thursday morning to do an Inspire Through Fire presentation at a Middle School and hit a patch of ice. I can’t believe how fast it all happened… and yet time slowed down and it felt like it took forever for the car to stop rolling. I was able to climb out of the car on my own and was essentially unharmed. I have a bruise on my leg from hitting the steering wheel, my wrists are a bit sore. The roof caved in a bit and the pressure pushed into my wrists since I had them up against the roof to brace my head from all the stuff flying around inside the car. Other than that I’m fine. Well, I cut my hand on the broken windshield while climbing out but that doesn’t really count. It was a matter of seconds that people were there to help. it was amazing how fast the police and an ambulance were there. The woman who was the first on the spot was super sweet and I was just crazy and ranting full of adrenaline. It was so intense. She was mentioning, “Hun, I think you’re going into shock” and I replied frantically “I’m not going into shock, I AM SHOCKED! Look at my car, it’s upside down! This is crazy!” Luckily I was able to push the presentation to the following day, which was a Friday and I had two other shows later that day, one was another talk and the other was a luau party back in Edmonton. So the day after a car crash I managed to do three shows and at about 3:00 a.m. Saturday morning I laid down in bed and realized that surely I must be crazy.
