Many of you have heard about my June 11th accident. You may have seen the social media posts with the photographs of my vehicle. Now, almost a month into my healing journey, this experience has given me many lessons including those of patience and gratitude.
I truly believe I was held in spiritual grace that day or I would not be alive today.
I truly believe I have been held in a place of love and grace every day since by so many that I would like to thank now.
I would like to thank the drivers who immediately stopped to offer help after my accident.
I would like to thank the first responders that were at the scene -
- The EMT’s that arrived swiftly and kept me calm and safe while I was trapped in my vehicle and while I was transported to the hospital.
- The firemen who worked calmly and professionally to cut my vehicle apart in order to free me from the wreckage.
- The highway patrol who were not only there quickly, but also waited at the hospital to meet with my husband and daughter when they arrived.
I would like to thank the physicians, nurses, physical therapists, and all the medical professionals that cared for me in the hospital and continue to care for me during this recovery process.
I would like to thank my husband for being with me through all of this. For never leaving my side through the pain, the nightmares, the tears and trauma. For fielding the endless stream of insurance and medical phone calls and paperwork – and never complaining. For stepping in to post “Pennie’s From The Past” to keep my social media, newsletter and PennieHunt.com going. For being my rock and my safety cushion.
I would like to thank our children and my entire group of family and friends, for the love and care they have given me. For the hand holding, the encouragement, the flowers, the phone calls, the meals, and the hours and hours of emotional and physical support.
I would like to thank YOU, my friends, followers, readers and supporters--- I have read every post, email, and comment and felt every prayer and loving wish you have sent to me.
On the morning of my accident, I posted this on social media along with a picture quote that I will place below. This came from the blog I had posted the day before about a lesson I learned from my Dad when he was dying and how even though he was dying he saw the good in every day.
This was the post:
“No matter what life brings your way, begin and end every day knowing ~THIS IS A GOOD DAY, SUCH A GOOD DAY!"~Pennie Hunt
It's Monday! Yes, you have a choice to make.
- YOU have the choice of making this a GOOD DAY or dragging through another Monday.
- YOU have the choice of making this a GRAND WEEK full of excitement, accomplishment and fun or just an average, typical, boring, unproductive week.
Which will it be? As for me.... it's going to be spectacular!
Yes, my day, June 11 2018, did turn out to be “spectacular,” but not in the way I expected. At some point in the future I will write about the accident and my healing process, but for now, as my body and spirit allow, I will be slowly edging back into my routine of posting on social media, writing my blogs, creating videos and speaking. I will edge back into giving you tips and techniques about happiness and how to Love Your Life – NO MATTER WHAT!© I am so very, very grateful to still be here in this life and to be able to serve in this way!
Laying in the emergency room that evening shaking, frightened, in pain and shock the doctor put these socks on my feet. They made me smile as I heard my Dad’s voice and thought of the quote I had posted that morning,
“No matter what life brings your way, begin and end every day knowing-
THIS IS A GOOD DAY,
SUCH A GOOD DAY!" -Pennie Hunt
