My Guardian Angel

Last week or at least before the end of April, I wanted to do an end of April post. I know I haven't been paying must attention to my blog. The last post was about a month ago. Right after I got back for Richmond/Lewes, I went back to work and lots of overtime. And I guess I was a little bummed/down about have to leave all my new friends I met on the east coast. Many things have happened that I could blog about, and I will just in reverse order of them occurring. So this is the first blog post in May for me. Now with that rant out of the way, why the title my Guardian Angel? Well I'll tell ya, ever since the weather has started getting warmer I've been going out in the mornings for 2-3 mile walks. I'll mix it up a bit and walk west. Or north and then west along Hwy 30 that runs east and west thru town. Friday morning I had to go to the bank and across the highway to Walgreens. I was at the end of the crosswalk waiting for the light to turn green for me to cross. There also was a car waiting to turn right, I would cross her path. And she was waiting for the traffic to clear so she could go. I looked right at the driver and was sure she knew I was there and what I intended to do. The traffic light DID turn green for me and started into the cross walk. Then a pick-up truck pulling a trailer full of metel scrap blew thru the red light with in feet in front of me, didn't even slow down! I guess he didn't think that red light applied to him, I don't think he even bothered to look for me standing there! That's when I think some force, my Guardian Angel grabbed my shirt collar to keep me from stepping in front of a$$hole's truck. Heaven forbid I should slow him down and waste his valuable time. I don't know, maybe I saved that young lady waiting to turn into traffic headache of getting into a fender bender with mister leadfoot. Anyway do Guardian Angels exist? I'm sure I have one maybe two, I've been helped out several times over the past of my nearly 55 years. There's is no scientfic evidence of course, some one could say that it just wasn't my time yet. I live another day to see one more sunset. So what do you think blogger buddies? The next post may be one to ponder, but not quite so heavy.

    1. Thanks AM, At the time the episode didn't scare my that much. I did have a little trouble falling a sleep that night.

  2. I know my long dead mom or some kind of celestial being was in the car w/my daughter and I when we got t-boned by an idiot 16 yr old new driver who ran a red light. I could feel her holding me in the car....I wasn't wearing a seat belt. That was the last time I didn't buckle up since!

    You did probably save that gal in the car waiting to turn.
    I am glad he didn't get you but man!, what a close call!!

    1. Sluggy, What a close call indeed! The jerk missed me by mere inches. I guess he didn't see me, I was only wearing a brght red tee shirt.
