I was driving to work a few days before Christmas of last year. I was going to my job at the mall, where I would be the happy smiling elf, making kids smile so I could take a picture of them with Santa. This job is MOSTLY satisfying, sometimes its just painful to deal with people and the lack of kindness. It was the morning after a very long line at the Santa Set. Everyone was miserable and mad for the wait. Everyone but the children. In fact, some kids were telling their parents to calm down. One of the kids, who was about 6 years old, turned to his mom and said "Ya know, Mama, Santas watching you too" Well she couldnt argue with that, and just shook her head. They were one of the last customers that night. Anyways, back to my story, I was driving to work the next morning, and I was lost in thought about how so many people never "see" what they have, they just want more. I never had much in my life, so I tend to be thankful for what I have, more thankful for the people in my life, instead of things. I never saw the car pull out in front of me. She clipped my front end and sent me barrelling into a side rail. Through the metal and the pain, and honking and other car crash noises, I saw one thing, and one thing only. In the tail lights of the cars, (the other car, the ambulance, the cops, the fire engines) The lights, blinding and blinking, were bright enough to make this dark rainy day, bright as a summer morning. What I saw that day, in those lights, was one word. FAITH. It flashed like a neon sign, bright and showy. No, I didnt hit my head, I did however sustain very critical injuries, but my brain was not altered. The doctors said it was from the impact that my eyes, registered something out of whack. I believe it was a message. A reminder. It was exactly what I needed to see that day, and It was exactly what I needed to remember for the rest of my life.[/FONT]
