THANK YOU GOD, I HAD TO PEE

THANK YOU GOD, I HAD TO PEE

Driving to and fro...

Rains kept falling...

Dodged many crashes along the way...

Many people travelling to celebrate the holiday...

I made it to my destiny where many were dead on the highway...

​​​​​​They didn't make it for Christmas and they won't be joining us in the New Year...

A policeman was shot dead by a known illegal invader who never got deported his crimes stemming from years ago...

As I was driving home many thoughts ran through my head...

I pulled off the interstate to fuel my vehicle and me...

In line for all the time that was set up for me...

Back on the road, Highway to Hell started playing in my head while another song came through the radio...

Closer to my exit to home the truck and another pulling a horse trailer behind, the same two who passed me before I exited for the fuel...

They crashed and burned and I had been in the direct path behind...

Thank you God, I had to pee...

It could have easily been me...

Love all that you can the hand of death never rests...

Have a Safe and Happy New Year...

Hugs...

Hey sis Sparrowsong...The interstate is the most dangerous this time of year with all the travelers visiting family and coming to and fro.Β  Your title had me laugh and drew me in.....It is the simple things like stopping at a rest stop that can totally change one's fate.Β  I hope everyone drives carefully and drinks responsibly this evening.Β  Stay safe, sis.....xo ;)

Hello Poetess...

I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas...

I really wish I could say that my Christmas played out just as it had in my mind for so long now...

The last few were really great for me...

I was actually looking forward to the trek home this time...

Crazy traffic and near misses and all...

I think this Christmas coming I'm going somewhere else...

​​​​I already told my family that I probably won't be coming next time...

They didn't even ask why...

They knew better...

​​​​​​I think it's going to be a very long time until I do it again if I ever decide to go ever again for Christmas...

Ten years may actually be too soon...

I was ready to leave real early there Christmas Eve if that says anything...

Usually I would stay a lot longer...

Thank you for your well wishes and blessings!

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

Happy New Year!

Hugs...

Hello Sis...

My saving grace was actually aΒ  truck stop gas station, the rest area was closed...

Many of us had the same idea...

You would think there was a gas shortage, the line was so long...

The risks you take to try to make someone's Christmas special...

I haven't decided if I'm staying in tonight, I got an invitation to go to a friend's house but, I don't think I'm in the mood for that kind of crazy tonight...

I'm not going to drink tonight but, they'll all be drinking...

I tried to get out of it but, that's easier said than done...

Have a Safe and Happy New Year!

Glad you enjoyed!
