So, yesterday I took the GREs, and by the grace of God, they went well. THEN, on the way home, I got in an accident. I was going about 7 miles a hour, yet somehow my whole front end is totaled and the airbag even came out!
But, no one is hurt, I have car insurance and life will go on. I just felt really stupid. I hate feeling stupid and incapable. Sam likes to say, “Women drivers, no survivors.” He may be right that women are not the greatest drivers, but thank the Lord, I survived! God really is good is in just showing me humility and helping me to accept my mistakes, even though I don’t like it. Plus, He protected me and the other women from even a scratch on our bodies!
Now, I am just praying those car insurance rates don’t go up…..
