This morning when I put my glass of diet cola on the roof of my car to open the door the glass started sliding back at me. My car was covered in ice. I let it warm up about 10 minutes before I took off. I was very careful on the roads since it was dark and who knew if they had ice on them.
I didn't have any trouble getting to work but once I got here the radio station started talking about all of the accidents everywhere! It seems there was black ice on the roads and folks didn't see it until it was too late. Even my co-worker's wife spun around 6 times when her truck hit some. I think I would have had to go home and change my britches after that one!
Yesterday morning a 30 year old mother and her 4 year old were killed. The vehicle she was driving somehow left the road and hit a tree and the car burnt up. What a horrible way to die.
We just never know what we face every day. Yet another reason to live life with gratitude for what we have and not what we don't have. Be thankful for every day we have on this Earth because we never know when it could be our last day.
It has taken me many many years to realize this. But I am thankful I have and continue to.
