it was horrifying. i'd never been in a situation like this, and i remember wondering how long it would take for us to get hit, how badly we'd be injured, worrying about the safety of the other people driving around us, and desperately hoping teddy was strapped in his seat snug enough.
miraculously, we ended up on the side of the road unscathed. the car wasn't hit. no airbags deployed. no one else had an accident as a result of our near miss. we were totally fine.
i have no idea how we managed to not get hit. we had to have had help.
and if you were on the highway that morning, and managed to hit your breaks before there was a collision, i'm so grateful to you. i'm so grateful that you were keeping your eyes on the road.
and if you are thinking about maybe not putting your seatbelt on the next time you take a trip to the market, would you just do it anyway? i don't want you to get hurt because of something that was completely out of your hands.
and make sure your baby's carseat is properly installed, okay? even if you're not going far.
and if you were the person driving the red truck, i'm sure you're not a horrible person.
but use your damn blinker, and look before you change lanes, because you seriously almost killed my little family.
