Car Accident

Hello all my beautfiul bloggy friends!!

You will never know how nice it is for me to be able to say that... My sister and I were in a car accident  where the car flipped 2 and a half times doing 70 km.... we came out with NO broken bones or any major injuries ...
 We were in shock the first couple of days  and realizing Troy's car is totally smashed and rode off , we are shocked that we are alive!!!!  We could never be so grateful as what we are, it is so beautiful to be alive and in great shape with that!

I was driving on a straight patch of road when the wheels on the back started sliding to the right which turned us sideways  ( black ice )  There was no warning whatsoever!!  We flipped over the edge of the road down into a ditch.. I remember a peace that came over me and I  never felt so calm in my life... I said " Norma , we are going to be ok"  three times.... even as I was upside down in the car in mid flip I said the same thing and honestly I had absolutely no fear whatsoever... could it be because it was so fast? Maybe but I believe we had angels with us because the fireman crew couldn't believe we were not hurt badly. 

There were about 40 people on the street within minutes and we are on a highway at nighttime! Amazing... I was trapped in the car ..it took them 45 minutes to get me out.... My side of the car was facing the ground, I will never know how Norma got the seatbelt off and got out..she is so strong, she had to pull herself straight up getting out of a broken window.

 On the outside Norma paniced thinking the car was going to catch fire and tried to get back in to get me but couldn't jump high enough to latch on to the opened window.. I heard men there right away protecting Norma and telling her not to get back in..
  All windows but the back were smashed, 3/4 of the front windshield was gone with only a corner on my side still sitting there..they had to smash it as well to put my feet out through so I could be more comfortable and they had to straighten me in order to get me out. I was taken out through the trunk on that hard white flat board.

 They were all so nice and did everything from keeping me warm and talking to keep me from going to sleep...at one point I thought I was home in my bed and decided to drift off to sleep until I heard "Naomi, keep your eyes open"    I actually thought it was funny and laughed...  I couldn't get over the fact  I thought I was in my bed!
 That's it in a nutshell.... Yes we have black brusies, we were dizzy , but we sit together every day simply amazed that here we are!!!!  What'a a bruise Norma would say. mockingly and sarcastically... she is so funny.....

...we laughed , we cried, we sat in a state of not being able to say anything at all.... this was one experience we will never forget , we will also never forget how grateful we are.  Phew! This is my first time writing about it... it did raise a little emotion but hey? I am here right! 

Now with saying all of that, I love all of you, I am overwhelmingly grateful for each and every one of you...I really mean that.

Cherish every moment my friends for it really could be your last.
Hugs
