This isn't the first time I survived a car accident that could of been deadly. The first accident I had was when I was 17. My mom claims it as her story and her angel she actually saw but either way my life was spared. It was a rainy, hot, summer day in Florida. I was driving around a curve and the road was slick. I slammed on my breaks and lost control of my car. I slid into the other lane hitting an oncoming vehicle. I remember clearly feeling that loss of control and shouting "God help me!" as the car hit the other car head on and spun around. I hit my ear on the mirror and bruised my body. I remember laying on the ground with many people standing over me. My mom said when she arrived at the accident which was less than 1/4 mile from our home she feared the worse. She saw a crowd of people hovering around me. She said she first saw a woman with gray slicked back hair and beautiful skin. She said this woman touched her shoulder and said I was going to be alright. When my mom finally got to me and saw I was okay she was relieved. She looked back around but could not find that woman anywhere. She believes it was my guardian angel. I do too!
