Close Calls…

Over the past few weeks there has almost been a traffic fatality everyday. No exaggeration either. From minor accidents where people have been injured, but not critically. To full on accidents with terrible fatalities. My brother and nephew had a close call with their car trailer and the WIND of all things, smashing their car into a medium strip. EAC almost got hit by a bus, literally stepping off the curb and then she almost got hit again, while driving, turning into another street. We both agreed. There has to be a reason for all these ‘close calls’.

With me being so ‘open’ to everything happening around me I started to wonder. Maybe they were little signs from God about ‘travel’? Maybe he was making sure I paid attention while driving around. It did help cause I had a lady pull out in front of me while I was going through a roundabout. She just looked at me blankly with a “why is that guy looking at me in a funny way? I’m sure his car can magically ghost through my car!” And even today another lady almost pulled out in front of me and my daughters, with the exact same look on her face!

There has to be a message!

Stating the obvious would just be blind and of course extremely sexist!

What I am praying is that none of this is related to my own impending departure.

As we all know there is not much one can do when you are flying 50K above the ground. If you hit something OR get hit by something that high in the air you can pretty much kiss yourself goodbye.

On the other hand I would hate it to be a message relating to my friends and whanau too. I have been telling those close to me to drive carefully on the roads and keep and eye out. This blog is another way for me to do that. PLEASE everyone I love, take care out on the roads…I just have a real bad feeling about all these close calls. I guess it’s just peace of mind really. My gut feeling hasn’t been wrong recently.

    I’ve been driving so carefully. Tonight I saw another near miss between two cars. Going to ponder on this some more!

    I went through a period similar to this at the end of last year, where every day I saw a ‘red car driver’ nearly crash into people because they were trying to run an orange light or wouldn’t give way to who they were suppose to, or by not letting people in. Got pretty darn crazy, especially since it was on one stretch of road in particular – so attention would definitely be focused around that area.
