The STRANGEST thing has happened to me today… And it’s such an out there coincidence that it’s almost as if someone planned it!
Today I was sideswiped in my car. Dale was with me and and luckily I got a witness who pulled over and offered to give a statement should I need it. Now, normally the story would end with a ‘I contacted the insurance company and now I’m waiting on the tonnes of paper work’ (I’m currently going through an insurance claim cause a stupid person decided to not stop in time and put a head sized dent in the back of my car at the beginning of October. I think my car is cursed or something), however, because it’s literally paintwork damage, my Dad advised me to see if the third party would agree to paying it straight off.
At the scene I completely bloody forgot to get the other cars number plate. All I had was her mobile number and the contact number for the witness. When it happened I did say a few choice words (… the instant reaction to someone playing bumper cars with your car) but the lady who side swiped me was reassuringly very pleasant. We even gave each other a hug.
I text her after speaking to my Dad about whether she was up for just paying straight out for a paint job, cause I think me and my Dad agree that it seems almost not worth the coffuffle of going through the insurance for a bit of coloured spray! The lady agreed and said she may do the same and use the same garage if they do a good job. Anyway, we’ve got talking and we had a discussion about my job (I mentioned at the scene that I was a teacher… explaining the mound of paper and pens I had stored in my car. It was easier than saying I was a centre manager at a learning centre for homeschooled children).
Anyhoo, turns out she has an Son who is a high-functioning Aspie and in mainstream school! You can’t make this up! So now we’re talking about conferences on the ASD Spectrum.
I posted on my Facebook the other day, asking about seeing God’s plans! Now, I’m a Christian and I believe that God has a plan for every second of my life. This may be conflicting, but I’m sure he didn’t plan for me being in an accident this morning, but I do believe he may use this to start up a whole new chapter. It can’t just be a coincidence that the person who I shared an accident with has an Aspie Son (she also had an Aspie [ex] husband) and goes to Conferences about ASD.
We’ll see where this takes me shall we? Again though, I repeat my status; WHAT ARE YOU DOING GOD?
