stark statements

Yesterday, I got hit by a bus.”

That statement has such an impact (no pun intended) to the reader because he or she immediately thinks of death and carnage and higher insurance rates. Yesterday, I discovered that you can get hit by a bus and not die or get hurt. You can get hit by a bus and your car not be totaled. You can get hit by a bus and the mass of police that show up can actually be nice to you. You can get hit by a bus and love life and God all the more in consideration of all that didn’t happen.

By the way, the statement is not just a statement. Yesterday, I did get hit by a bus.

    I am so glad to hear that you weren’t hurt …what a crazy thing to have happen to you.. also glad your car didn’t get totaled…and doubly glad to hear you had someone to be there for you in an obviously stressful time. Geez. Incredible how hard it is to not let oneself get bogged down in the day to day and maintain that sense of thankfulness and love for life and God and to look at every day as a new day in which to be glad of.

    My heart is grateful that you weren’t harmed in all this. That you’re here and able to blog about it. Like James, I hope to get details soon.

    Love you.
