Sisterlisa Bertolini I think we had an angel with us yesterday on our drive to Santa Clara and back. We got off the freeway to get coffee and as we were driving to get back on the freeway I had to make a U Turn. It was a dark road with very little lighting..
I looked all around and we saw NOTHING so I began my U Turn..all of a sudden there was a truck approaching at FULL SPEED right on our tail with headlights glaring into our window. I pushed the gas pedal all the way down and the van seemed to not respond..it was slow as a turtle all of a sudden.
My poor husband! It was on his side of the van and we thought for sure we were going to be slammed..but nothing..The gas finally kicked in and we drove on in complete shock because HE WAS NOT THERE when we began the U Turn. *unless* he didn’t have his lights on til the last minute. But we didn’t hear any screeching brakes on his end at all.
He got into a different lane and drove away. No honking, no fist shaking, no cussing..nothing. It was so odd. My husband could barely breathe…gasping for air after bracing himself for a major accident…
Then we started laughing. There must have been an angel. God was with us for sure. Neither one of us ever saw him til he was right on our tail.
