Up in Your Grill

Literally.
He left his DNA.
And possibly more.
Up in my grill...my door...and the door behind me.
Kasidi, Kennah and I were making the one-and-a-half hour trip to the pediatric dentist this morning, when in broad daylight, from the trees sprang a deer. (that sounds poetic, but it wasn't)
He was fast.
Not fast enough.
In a split second I felt I had two choices: swerve and risk rolling my car, possibly injuring my babies, or hitting the critter and taking the damage.
I've never hit anything before, and I was surprised by the impact. And surprised at how sore my arms are from gripping the wheel...and my leg from mashing the brake.
Praise the Lord we are ok! I was able to drive the car, and the girls wouldn't have known anything happened but for my scream.
The up side: I get my exercise climbing over the console because my door won't open.
The adjuster will meet me next Wednesday *sigh*.
But we may be picking up the Mamavan at the airport Monday!!!!!
Lord, thank You for your protection!

SO very glad that you all are safe! I was with my girlfriend in her car one evening when a buck hit us. I can still remember it vividly and it happened almost 20 years ago.

So thankful you are ok!! I've unfortunately had 3 car vs deer accidents in my life. It is so frightening.

Yikes! Not fun. But Praise God you are all okay!! It's crazy the damage those deer can do to a vehicle. Living in Minnesota, we have many and it is a constant concern in the evenings, but not as common in the daylight.

Take care and have a blessed weekend. Thanking God for His hedge of protection over you all! <><

Hugs,
Tanya
