Another Miracle happened today

I had an experience today that really frightened me. I was driving around my neighbourhood looking at all the new spring growth. Bulbs, trees and shrubs. It's my favorite season and although this drive is so bittersweet because I want to be out in my own garden, I don't want to deny myself the joy of sight and smell during this period of renewal and regrowth.

As I had done my regular run and came up to a stop sign and was trying to brake noticing a Van on my left approaching me, I realized that the brake wasn't responding. Fortunately the Van was going at a slow speed which allowed me to stick my hand out my window to signal the driver to stop, which she did. It wasn't until I had crossed the road that I was able to stop my car. This of course leaves all kinds of questions as to why this would occur. Is the brakes or a weakness in my foot and leg. I managed to pull into a driveway, back out and drive home without any further problems. I am aware that my body has become so compromises with nerve problems and have no strength in my upper body and my legs have become very unstable. Have no idea what is happening but expect it has to do with falling on my head so many times causing injuries to my neck and spine along with my Spinal Stenosis.  Will visit my MD. and Chiro this week. I am beginning to feel very insecure on so many levels. Makes me now wonder if my foot has been the cause of my latest falls.

Regardless, I am so grateful that once again, something/one. I hesitate to use the terms angels but perhaps that is what it that come to intervene on my behalf. Had the driver of the Van been driving too fast and not aware of my hand signal, we would have had an accident.

I am so blessed to have received so many interventions in very different circumstances. I call them miracles because that is how they feel to me. I have had so many over lifetime and don't know what other term to use. They are no longer coincidences to me. Just too many over my life time. I could write about many but won't.
