Spring Cleaning My Life

Country MoonIt’s that time of year when thoughts turn to cleaning out winter’s cobwebs and generally sprucing up the house, the yard and everything in general. It’s a job we usually put off, but after delving in, everything has a fresh, clean air about it.

Recently I had an incident that made me take a step back and take a long hard look at my life. After doing so I decided to not only spring clean my cupboards but also my life.

I have never been involved in a serious automobile accident, let alone being the cause of one. That changed when I ran a stop sign and was broadsided. There was not a square inch on the car that was not dented or smashed in and I was trapped until they cut me out of the wreckage. But then I walked away with only two small scratches on my face.

Even more phenomenal was the fact that I had just dropped off my sister and husband so I was alone as was the girl who hit me. She walked away with only a bump on the knee. There was a lot more than luck with both of us that day. Remember my thoughts a couple weeks ago about small miracles? This definitely qualifies for more than a small miracle but it is not the end of the story.

When our grandson Wyatt, who is now 13 years old, was only about 3 he gave us (with the help of Mom) angel visor clips. They remind us to drive safely and to remember that our guardian angel is looking over us.
