Well that definitely left a mark!  So what happened?  I know you are asking that so let me tell you….

Morning traffic was especially bad this morning.  It is a very random thing here in Savannah.  Some mornings I fly into work, other times it takes me 20 minutes.  There are no patterns or days or times that measure what days will be bad…it just happens sometimes.

About 3 cars ahead of me, I saw a car smoking and the driver pulled into the left shoulder.  As I began to pass, the passenger opened her door into traffic and I had to dodge her.  As I watched her avoid me, traffic had stopped.  As I turned and saw the cars in front of me at a sudden halt, it was too late.  My little Mini basically went up under a Ford Explorer (which is fine, by the way) and crunched the hood up.  Fortunately for me, my car is built to protect me and it did.  The extent of my injuries are some soreness that feels like a hard workout.  I am using ice and Advil to keep the soreness down.  I’m hoping that’s it.

As I was waiting for my awesome roommate to pick me up, my car already towed, I sat in the back of a police car.  Laughing, I told him that I was a professional counselor that worked for a church and that all the traffic issues I had caused had now seen me climb into his police car.  He laughed and said, “Well, at least you can identify with them now!”

I know many of you have prayed for me today.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
