Anything Can Happen On The Road

Driving out of town is very enjoyable especially if the route is very scenic and the traffic moves very fast.  But it can also be frustrating when you are stuck in big traffic and you are not even moving a bit because of an accident miles ahead.  If you are in a hurry, this might be very stressful on your part.  Anything can happen on the road so we should always be ready.  And of course, we should ask the Almighty to let his angels guide us in our travels.

My darling daughter and I visited Mom and Dad the past weekend.  On our way, not even 20 minutes after we got off Hwy 205 (Terrell, TX), I already a very long back up.  I wondered if I will be able to squeeze and get on the I-20 heading East.  Good thing someone let me in the lane.  We were moving really slow.  I thought I would check what’s going on so I tried looking at traffic news on my phone.  Good thing I still have lots of data that I was able to open and use the Internet.  I found out there was a major accident miles ahead that made the traffic move like a snail.

I called Mom, Dad, and my husband (he didn’t come with us because he wanted to stay home and mow the grass in the yard which grown almost three feet high because of the large amount of rain we got in the past two weeks) to tell them we’re stuck in big traffic.  They were worried.  But after more than 30 minutes, we started to move fast.  Thank goodness we arrived at Mom and Dad’s around 7:00 P.M.

In huge traffic jam like that, you just have to keep your cool.  If you get frustrated and stressed quickly, you’ll start doing ugly things on the road.  Then there’ll be a problem.
