Fate, Destiny and Miracles
Last Wednesday, my eldest Son, Jake had a road accident. His truck flipped and ended up upside down in one of the many local dykes. The truck roof was touching the seats, it is as flat as a pancake. His quick thinking to tuck his arms into his chest and curl up right at the crucial moment along with the fact that he was driving a very sturdy 4x4 saved his life.
He managed to release his seatbelt and dig his way out of the bank with his bare hands.
His injuries?...Two small bruises from the seatbelt and a grazed elbow! He didn't even ache the next morning!!!
He refuses to believe luck had anything to do with it...I quote 'I believe in fate, it just wasn't my time...I'm obviously destined for greater things'.
I love that he thinks so positive, I admire his strength, and I adore his wit, not to mention his heart wrenching smile...My life is so much richer with him in it.
