Had a life changing experience yesterday. I am Glad and thankful to God that I am in one piece and with just minor bruises. Met with a minor accident yesterday while returning from work...yes today I can safely say it was minor as I am safe and sound but otherwise my scooter was millimeter away from the front wheels of a minibus and my head a inch away from a passing car.
I came to know that - that very same spot yesterday witnessed 5 accident in that 1 hour. Casualties included 2 with broken bones and 1 head injury.
The first thought that came to me while I moved to safety from the middle of the road was "Thank God I am alive - I have a little son to raise responsibly" The first face that flashed in front of my eyes was a my son's.
After hearing me narrate my experience yesterday evening at home, he just clung to me and was repeatedly seeing eye to eye and hugged me and cried. Today morning he woke up himself and the said "Ma, has your hurt gone away? Be careful when you go to office today okay. Drive slowly - dont drive at 40-50 it is fast, drive at 30. You wont get hurt if you drive slowly. Dont go in puddle if it is having dirty water, you may skid.Come home safe to play with me without getting hurt"
I was moved. My son has grown up and that took away half the trauma. I have re-realized the main purpose of my life.
