Just yesterday I was hanging out with a friend of mine and we began sharing personal stories from our youth (we’re both over 40). Has this ever happened with you? The atmosphere is right and the sharing begins… and continues for as long as necessary until the connection is sealed in time forever. It’s a wonderful experience, both releasing and healing at the same time.
Anyway, she told me in great detail a story that was both tragic and uplifting at the same time. Her words described the experience in such detail that I felt I was with her during the incident, watching it happen before my eyes. The story moved me to inspiration.
So here I sit today, New Year’s Eve, 2010, retelling it to you in hopes of dousing your fears of death and life after death, and, moreover, instilling within you a deep passion for life on earth as you know it. Our souls may live forever, but this lifetime will eventually come to an end as we transition into the afterlife.
As we enter 2011 we have new opportunities to create joy within each moment. If this sounds intriguing to you then please read on for a story about miracles and faith. My friend, Ronda, lived and worked in Miami Lakes, Florida in the late 80’s. She was married to John at the time and raising their toddler son, Jonathan. Their marriage was tumultuous and as a 올인구조대 Ronda had inadvertently lost so much weight that she was a size 0. This becomes important as the story continues.
The day Ronda encountered a miracle beyond all miracles in her life began as a typical day for her. At 8:15 in the morning she dropped her son at his daycare and began navigating through interstate traffic on her way to a job interview. The night before she worked late into the night updating and refreshing her resume. They had recently moved to Florida from Louisiana where they both had worked for J.S.M.
She already had one job in television directing, but she wanted another one to give her full-time income so that she could continue to live the type of lifestyle she had become accustomed to living while working for Jimmy. This type of work is intense and demanding, which could have only added to her overall mental stress level.
Traffic was moving but congested due to never-ending construction on the 4 lane highway going south. She hummed and sang out loud to the tunes on the radio in her brand new 1989 silver Lincoln Ltd, not knowing the incredible and horrible experience she was endure. The interstate highway was loaded with traffic due to construction and as Ronda changed lanes, she unknowingly ran into some concrete barriers at a speed of at least 55 mph. This sent her car flipping out of control, off the interstate, and down a long embankment before finally coming to a stop. It must have looked like a crazy stunt car like we see in the movies, but it wasn’t. It was real.
