WHEN LIFE CRASHES IN

The classic MG moved briskly through the afternoon traffic.
The driver enjoyed the quick response of the small high powered
convertible. After driving her station wagon, this little red car was
rather like taking off her boots and putting on sneakers. Driving along
with the wind in her hair, she tried to look casual and at ease, but
inside she was a bit tense since she didn’t often drive this car — her
husband’s pride and joy.

She saw only a blur of color out of the corner of her eye. Before
she could consciously consider her actions, she swerved to miss the
small boy on the bicycle and veered into the side of a large gray
truck. The car stopped with a deafening “ker-think.” For a long
second there was the tinkle of falling glass, then all was very still for
what seemed like a long time. “Hey, lady. You OK?”
Strong arms lifted her from the vehicle and helped her to the curb.
“I’m fine,” she said, “just let me sit here for a moment.”

All she could think was, “I’m fine now, but Jim’s going to kill me
when I get home.” As she waited for the police to arrive, she recalled
how excited he was when he found this car. He had wanted one ever
since he was a boy. This one was a rare treasure, and he had spent
countless weekends fixing and polishing it. He knew every bolt and spot
of chrome. It wasn’t really his wrath she feared — he was actually a
gentle and loving husband. But she dreaded the hurt and anguish she
would see in his face when he heard the news. That, for her, would
be worse than if he were angry and yell. “Thank God, I’m not hurt,” she
thought, “But I sure am worried about telling Jim.”

Her head was bent down and she saw the highly polished boots
stop at her feet. “May I see your driver’s license and insurance papers,
miss?” The officer felt sorry for her. He quietly said, “What a great little
car that was.” She walked to the car, got her purse, and grabbed the
insurance packet from the glove compartment. She gave the officer her
license and opened the plastic package containing the insurance papers.
To her surprise, there on top of all the documents was a white
envelope with her name on it.

She opened it and began to read. “Dear Beth, If you are reading
this, you have probably been in an accident. Don’t worry. I pray that
you are all right, and just remember, it’s you that I love…Jim.”
