Last Saturday I got the greatest scare of my life. At around 9AM while I was driving coming from SM North, I was only a few blocks away from NLEX, I heard a loud BANG and the squeaking sound of the metal friction. Then reality sink in – the right side of the front wheel was busted, I am slowly losing control of the stirring rod. That very moment fear engulfed me, my kids are my passengers, I am glad that though my heart was pounding so hard, I did not lose my presence of mind. I signaled the hazard sign, since my kids are at the back seat I asked them to move in the left side and tuck each other tight. I am so prouf of my daughter ishi, coz the moment that I confirmed to them that our tire exploded…she extended her arms on the window signaling that something unusual is happening to us…I also saw my eldest daughter Ishi, hugging his brother as if protecting him should anything happens. As I was looking on the rear mirror, the more that I am determined to get through all of this. I prayed hard while my mind was on the wheel, and my eyes all set on the coming trucks. but God is really good, the next thing I saw was that the gasoline boys signalling the other vehicle to stop while waiting for my car to be in full halt. They helped us unconditionally – good samaritan indeed.
God did not gave up on us, we were able to witness the power of God. Although it happened to us, I am still thankful that it did not happened in NLEX where 80kph is the minimum travel speed. Otherwise the story will be totally differenc=t and I cannot forgive myself if ever. It is tru God’s perfet timing that the incident happened while we are in front of Caltext Gas Station, where the gasoline station staff are all very helpful and cordial. If it happens passed the gasoline station I would be stucked in the middle of EDSA desperately seeking for help or waiting Wheelers to come to our rescue.
It was a good thing tht wala pa kami ss NLEX talaga otherwise it could have been a different story. THANKS to YOU DEAR GOD for protecting us & saving us.
