This is a follow-up to Friday’s post. If you have read the comments, you’ve already seen this, but this information is so important, the comment needs its own post.
So, thank you Karen for your very good words of wisdom 🙂 And if I might add some “depth” to your advice #2 re: following expected behavior (and she knows this already but asked me to share so you really really understand why this is sooooo important)….
On April 12, 2010 at least 2 families were forever changed at 1:38PM ET. My husband was on his motorcycle on 285S (we are in ATL) heading to work. Gentleman in the middle lane realized too late he wanted the I-20E exit (toward the city).. so he veered left across the lanes to try to make it… guess what? he didn’t see my husband, cause he didn’t “look twice save a life” so instead he cost one.
Yes, my husband lost his life due to careless driving… I was widowed at 43 with 4 children and neither our family, nor the driver’s, will ever be the same.
That’s the Cliff Notes version :(.
If you ever want the elongated story or want your teen to hear it, just let Karen know :). PLEASE PLEASE miss an exit now and then just to ensure you don’t ruin your life by taking someone else’s. Please? xoxo
Readers, I hope you have safe and blessed holiday travels. Travel fatigue, getting lost, grumpy kids and over-loaded cars make safety a bit more difficult. Remember that you’re not the only car on the road — and no one else can read your mind! Drive safely this Thanksgiving — and every day.
Thank you for allowing me to share.
