Too Blessed

This has truly been one roller coaster of a week for me and I’m blessed to still be here today.  For those that didn’t know, last Friday I was in a very bad car accident.  When I say God was with me, he was really with me.  I was driving down the interstate (coming out of Columbus, MS) going at least 70 mph (which was the speed limit) and I was reaching over my passenger seat for my purse to make sure I had my debit card because I didn’t know for certain if I had placed it back in my purse.  As I looked up, I saw this trailer and it had so many things on the back of it.  It literally looked like a scene from “Final Destination”, so I had to swerve to the left lane and that’s when my steering wheel went completely out.  Like this motherfucker did something strange. I didn’t dodge the trailer in time so I hit the front passenger side of my car on the trailer and ended up in circles on the interstate (I was blessed it was no oncoming traffic) and ended up in the ditch.  After that point I did not remember anything (didn’t even know I was in the ditch with the airbag deployed).  Ya’ll the first thing I said when I saw my dashboard sitting on the front seat of my passenger side was “FUCK!!! FUCK!!!!”  What the fuck just happened?  My car is gone, omg my life.  At this point I am in shock because I have glass all over my arms and didn’t realize I hit my knee and elbow.  Like I literally came out of this accident with no injuries.  Now keep in mind I didn’t have any insurance on my car (yes straight fucked) so I got a fucking ticket for that.  The one thing I hate most about accidents are the constant questions that are asked, they become very repetitive, like leave me alone right now, let me gather my thoughts, damn.  Once I finally gathered my thoughts I realized my phone was smashed between my dashboard and front passenger seat.  Yall my phone is straight demolished, like that bitch was in pieces so I had to use the ambulance crew phone to call my mama, that’s all I wanted was my mama.  The ambulance asked me if I wanted to go to the hospital, I’m like naw I’m ok I don’t need a ride (plus yall are not about to get any money from me for this damn ride).  My mother ended up coming to pick me up, now keep in mind traffic is completely backed up so she had to park on the other side of the interstate, which means I had to cross over the fence.  She insisted I go to the hospital because she wanted to make sure I’m ok.  I must say Columbus hospital was so fast to seeing me.  Eventually they run the tests and everything comes back good but mandated for me to be off work for 2 days due to the accident.  You know I’m black so I kept my hospital bracelets on because I wanted to tell people to be like are you ok what’s wrong, so I can say none of your business (lol).  So fast forward, I had to get my car towed and I should have just left my vehicle on the side of the road and had someone tow it in for me if I would have known if this towing company was going to charge me $274 to get my belongings out of my car.  Also on Saturday morning I contacted the company and the white bitch was being extremely rude.  Like she was rude to the point that I wanted to go off on her but I didn’t (God still working on me).  She was acting like I didn’t want to pay to get my things, you know how someone keep saying the same shit like you can only remove your belongings if you pay the $274.  I’m like bitch I told you I have the money to pay why you keep saying that so I finally get my belongings because it was very important to get because I had a photographer camera equipment in my car and I wanted to make sure he received them.  So all to say this accident taught me, don’t reach for shit while driving, my family is the best because they made me laugh about the situation and my mom gave me her car to drive so I can go to work, and I also learned life can be taken in a blink of an eye and to not take life for granted.  I am truly blessed yall and God wants me here for a reason and I am not living life to the fullest.
