I hope this finds everyone well. All is fine with me.
April is Distracted Driving month so I have to talk about it. As many of you know we lost our Kelsey in a Distracted Driving crash at the age of 17. As many of you know I have dedicated my life to saving teens. Saving anyone that will listen to me about distracted driving.
Statistics for 2016 are out and they are not good. Now this breaks my heart and everyone that I know, which are many, that are trying to save lives. Possibly even YOUR life.
I was walking yesterday. There is a small portion of Mackinac Trail that I have to walk before I connect to the business spur and the sidewalk. I started out and I am always very alert to the cars coming. This car was coming towards me and I kept moving over until I was in the grass. Just before the car was where I was the person jerked the wheel back towards their lane. As they passed, I looked and they were on the phone. They did NOT see me until the last second.
In this same walk, I was by Big Lots crossing and I saw a car coming from the parking lot. I stoped walking as this car kept on going. They did NOT see me.
This is my question to you all….. What is it going to take for you to pay attention to driving. Is it going to take the most vocal person, the one with the biggest mouth, and I’m talking about ME, to die from a distracted driver before you get it?
I want to be Kelsey and the Lord more than anyone can believe, but I have work to do here and that’s to save YOUR life. Spiritually and literally. I have Courtney, Ronnie, and my Daddy to take care of. So I’m begging you…. I don’t want to die because someone is not paying attention to driving. AND , if you think you are an excellent driver and this would NEVER happen to you, I’m sorry to tell you, you are wrong.
So, put the phone away, put the food away, don’t touch the radio, and on and on…. Pay attention to your driving. I don’t want to die yet and I’ve come close because of distracted drivers several times. And that’s just me.. I know there are others that have experienced the same…
Now, on to the Lord. Happy Easter to you all. Remember, God gave his ONLY son to die on the cross for OUR sins. SO WE can have eternal life. PLEASE ask Him to come into your heart. Ask Him to forgive you of your sins. Have that relationship that I have with Him.
I hope you have a great Easter and I love you all. And you know I mean it.
My prayer to each and every one of you as always is that you ask the Lord to come into your heart. That you have the relationship with him that I have. That we all meet in Heaven one day.”
