Let's All Take A Second...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! Happy belated Thanksgiving!

I thought i'd ask us all to take a second and be thankful tonight, as sometimes we forget what we have, and take things for granted. I was almost involved in a big "accident" tonight and feel especially thankful to be here in one piece!

The deer are out here in RI and i came within a few feet of hitting one tonight on the highway. Luckily i was paying attention and was able to slam on the brakes before impact (i must have come within a few feet of it), but had i been distracted even for a second i would have hit it for sure. It was BIG. My memory of the beast seems to represent it's image as a single "frame", right in front of me lit up by the headlights. I've never come so close before! It truly was a miracle i didn't hit it...

So let's all be thankful for having a car in one piece, no insurance claims and no injuries! And let's all keep our cellphones and other "distractions" out of the car- i really learned tonight how precious a "second" can be while driving!

God bless!

Very glad you avoided a bad accident. Rudolf may be cute at Christmas, but they are so over populated across the country that every week, one of our friends or family have a run in with the beautiful animals.

Happy Holidays and safe driving.

Thanks guys!

The incident really has made me think... Life is so precious. And driving is so dangerous!

Wow, glad for the safe outcome. Have safe Holidays!

(I have deer in my area, fortunately it's residential with slower speeds than a highway so dodging them is a bit easier. )
