I received an email yesterday with the subject line: My New Years Eve. It was from C, a client and friend of mine, who happens to be an Occupational Therapist who works with children. Cool chick. Apparently she and a friend had plans for a couple of days in Tahoe. They took off in her Subaru wagon and in her words, had a "wild accident":
"A friend and I were on our way to Royal Gorge in the wagon and hit some black ice. The car skidded out of control and we took out a small tree, went off the road into a ditch, flipped over and landed on some boulders. It's a miracle we are alive. We came out with a few lumps and bumps, some emotional trauma, and a tremendous amount of gratitude for being alive.
B, my husband, ever the visual storyteller, made this video, which gives you an idea of what happened."
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. They are so lucky. And they were not speeding or driving recklessly. . .as so many of the drivers in the Bay Area and beyond seem to do with regularity these days. Do you need to slow down in the car? Go safely into the New Year friends, and hold onto gratitude whenever you can.
