About 5yr. ago, during what was a very stressful time in my life , ( I was taking care of both my in-laws and worring about my dad who was quite ill at the time ) I was finally able take a day just for myself. I was so excited, I planned the whole day like it was a vacation. I did some errands, a little shopping, had a nice quiet lunch by myself and then decided to go home and read a little before my daughter came home from school. I was about a mile from home when I was coming up on a strip mall, there I saw a big pickup truck getting ready to pull across my path, we locked eyes and I thought he would wait for me to pass, however, he started to pull out into the street. At that same instant , I heard a voice next to me say very calmly " Relax, just relax there is nothing you can do, so just relax." When my Angel finished, I mentally agreed, took a deep breath and RELAXED. There was a huge crash as the truck stopped right in front of me because the lane he wanted to get into was full. The whole front of my car was destroyed and my front window had been shattered by my WRIST which was NOT broken. If it hadn't been for my Angels warning to Relax, I'm sure I wouldn't have been so lucky!
