Yesterday I hit a deer. Not exciting news. Apparently the deer are out this time of year in Minnesota so look out!
If you follow my blog at all you might be able to guess my reaction to this as I pulled to the side of the road with glass all over me and the inside for the car....
I first said, "I'm alive! Thank you God!"
Then noticed the deer I thought sure that I was going to hit head on I missed. Unfortunately I hit her DEER friend on the side of my car and the hit broke my mirror which flung through the drivers side window and left glass all over.
Then I said, "Thank you Lord that it only hit the side of my car."
I had to adjust my schedule the rest of the day. I later found a shop with a loaner car that was available and even though the heater does not work in that...I am still thankful for the transportation.
You see its not what happens to us in life, its how we handle what happens to us. Its all a choice and I choose to have gratitude! How will you react to adversity?
