Had a car crash today. Me with my wee girlies in the back. Feeling wobbley now but thankful that no one was hurt. It was a young guy driving like a bat out of hell, colliding with the passenger side. I've never been a driver in an accident before and hope I never am again - it all happened so incredibly quickly but I remember fighting to keep the car on the road and the heart-stopping scream from my smallest in the back. When the car came to a standstill I got them out and they were FINE. Not a scratch not a bruise and I could have kissed the ground we stood on with relief - I would have embraced that young driver like a long-lost relative knowing that they were safe. It's moments like these that you know you would slice open one of your own major arteries if it would mean you could protect children. Total weirdness, there I was walking away from a car accident like I had won a million bucks.
And everyone was awesome, I know in the past I have written about how I have learnt to rely on the kindness of strangers. This occasion was no different. People came out of nowhere to help. A lovely guy stayed with me to help with the girls, someone else came over offering food and drinks. Several people stayed to be witnesses. The police were fab and the poor young guy who ran into us was totally shaken up but lovely as well. Just when you might feel like you're losing your faith in humanity people turn around and show you how incredibly decent and kind they can be. Love that. Love you too lovely reader.
It's all too herbal now so must go and pass out with a glass of wine on the lounge. xxx
