Life after a Tragedy

Updated on May 5, 2017

The Horrific Accident In Photo

On this May 4, 3 years ago I experienced one of the worst accidents of my life. However, I am glad to be where I am now. I have gained a closer relationship with those around me. I have some really amazing mama and stepdad and I have even gained a wonderful friend and friend in my dads lady. I have some amazing friends as well.

But my biggest shoulder and rock the last couple years has been my amazing children and my husband. I am also thankful for my amazing church family. I could not be any happier for all the good the came out of that horrific and scary day. Although I still do not remember any of the details now 3 years later and I am having to deal with the physical issues I am happy.

Without my devout faith and the support of everyone around me I probably would not have made this past three years. You see I sunk into a horrible depression after the accident. I had no recollection of the events that had happened the day it happened, so in a way I had no real way of knowing that I had not been at fault.

Let me backtrack a bit. You see going based on what I was told after the accident and after seeing the car and all. I was told that I was side swiped by an 18 wheeler on the interstate inside of the town where I live. There was three passengers in my car and from what I am told when the truck hit us we spun out and slammed into a concrete wall. I have no memories of any of this, so I have no idea if what I am told is accurate. I sure however, that it must be considering the way the car looked afterwards.

I was taken immediately from the scene of the accident directly to the hospital from what I am told. The only real memory I have of that day is the passenger next to me going uh-oh just before the accident and then a short bald man at my door afterwards. (I was later introduced to the amazing firemen that I had the memory of) Other than that my details of those days are non-existent.

I have no idea of anything else that happened. It has taken me the past three years to finally realize, Hey, I wasn't the one at fault (was later ruled by the officers that the semi was at fault) and that I had not been the cause of the damage that had been caused that day. I still think about it sometimes. I give myself headaches trying to remember the details of that day, but I have finally come to terms with the idea of the fact that this will be a day I never get back.

With this accident I lost many things. I lost all memory of anything before the accident. I lost my physical ability to be able to run and stand and walk for long periods of time. But through it all I gained a better sense of who I am and who I didn't want to be. I gained a closer relationship with my mother, who I have never really been close to and I gained a closer relationship with my children and our lord and savior.

I know that our lord was watching over me the day of that accident and I know that he is the reason that I am here being able to type this out so that everyone can read it. I know that it is because of him that this accident did not turn out worse than it did.

Cause we all know that accidents with semis do not always end good. I am told every time I tell my story that I am a miracle. I am not a miracle, but I was given a miracle I was given a chance to live and continue to be a mother to my three amazing children.

I have no one I can think for that but my lord and savior.
