So Lucky




My car was t-boned by an older woman going 35-40 miles per hour today.
Witnesses say she didn't even brake....

My car jumped the sidewalk and hit a light pole five feet back from the street and bounced back to close to the road.

I took a few pictures and they are chilling.

I had so many kind and lovely witnesses, I cannot even begin to say how grateful I am

I am not sure yet if my bones and joints are alright, but my body is intact.

The adrenaline is still here.

Tomorrow, the hospital just to get checked out.

I had so many things to share with you today, some beauty, a few orders, etc....

everything can wait, in fact it has to.

I am here, and that is all that matters.

Love,
Allison

Ohhhhhh Allison, it's so wonderful that you are alive and for the most part, unscaythed. Car wrecks are horrible and scary occurances, and you are truely lucky to come out alive.

Your poor sore muscles will be in my prayers!

Mari Huertas said...

!!!!!!!!!!! Sweet Jesus, Allison. I'm glad you're OK and I'm glad you're going to get checked at the hospital.

I implore you to snuggle under covers and drink tea and rest. And if you need to chat, I'm around. Be well and be safe; you're in my thoughts. xo.

Oh, Allison, I am so sorry that this happened. My fingers are crossed that you are alright. I've always heard that it's the third day after such an accident that the nagging injuries (sore muscles, headaches, etc.) show up. Glad you're going to the hospital tomorrow to be checked over. Peace, Girl! Love, Phyllis in Nashville

Snailentina said...

Phew! Yes, you are here and that IS what matters. Sorry to hear it happened anyway.

Katherine said...

To say that I am glad you are ok... well, lets just say that is a MASSIVE understatement. Love you and be gentle with yourself... it takes awhile to recover from that kind of shock.

Oh! Thank goodness you were not badly hurt - definitely go get the look-over tomorrow to be sure. And I hope you are spending the evening curled up with the Schmill and your furry kids :-) Cars can be replaced, but YOU cannot .. I will think gentle thoughts your way, lovely! *HUGS* and *KISSES*

Oh my goodness, what a trauma. Even if everything "checks out," you have been jangled from head to toe--mentally and physically. Thinking of you and sending healing thoughts into the aether. So glad that you are SAFE.

Oh Honey!!! Dearest Sunny, please get some arnica and apply stat(gel or traumeel works good as well as tablets)(you probably know this already)........As a survivor of too many very bad auto accidents, I say rest and be beautifully gentle with yourself and get your precious body some treatment. Yes the universe has interesting ways of communicating, does it not?

Love and healing to you dear friend.

WillowMetals said...

Allison, Focus on you. I am so glad that you are here and okay. Car accidents are so scary. Take it easy for awhile and snuggle with the mister and kitties. Everyting can totally wait. Just so glad that you are okay. Always here if you need ANYTHING, okay? :) Sending warm thoughts, healing hugs, light, and love. I hope the other lady is okay too.

MrsLittleJeans said...

O wow...so lucky, thank God you are ok
Same thing happened to my husband few months ago...car totalled, a woman !!! What's up with women? Glad you are ok...xoxo

Dave said...

Wow...must have been a chilling experience. Glad you are in one piece.

bonddi said...

How horrible! Happy to hear you are in one piece. Although you didn't break anything, your must have suffered muscle strain and sprain which needs to be treated. Get yourself a good attorney because the insurance companies will not deal fairly with you unless you have an attorney. You don't have to give a statement to her insurance company, only to your insurance company. I have been through this several times. Get some rest.

InkyTonka said...

OMG, those pictures hit me in the pit of my stomach. Here's hoping that all is well with you!!

Best wishes and warmest hugs,
Michelle

Tasha Imajin said...

Eeeek! I'm so thankful you came out better than your car. Get some rest and take care of yourself. Hugs!

tmbarclay said...

Accckkk!!! It all happens so fast......I was in a bad accident many years ago, and for those few seconds, time stands still. Take care of yourself and savour your life.....It's a grim reminder that we are merely flesh and bone.........

UmberDove said...

Oh GIRL! Thank God, thank GOD!



Rest, be easy, you are so surrounded right now.

Illustratornette said...

Allison I am so glad to hear you are ok. I wishing you good health and a cozy bed tonight!

Emily said...

Oh Allison, terrible to hear about and even scarier to see the aftermath. I am so thankful that you walked away from it and I wish you lots of care and comfort as you heal. Cuddle your babies close. Sending good thoughts your way.
