42 Flash Challenge Part Deux Day 7

I’ve been thinking about luck and the fact that sometimes your luck is simply a matter of perspective.  I was driving in the snow and didn’t have enough momentum to get up the hill.  Before I was able to to anything else, an oncoming vehicle was plowing straight towards my car.

I jumped into a ditch and watched as it passed my car, all the while waiting to hear the impact and see my car slide down the hill.

It didn’t happen.  I see that as being very lucky, but luckier would have involved not being there- and if I weren’t there… I’d never know how lucky I was… something to think about.
