Day 6 - And a Real Bump in the Road

Today I found out what a real bump in the road looks like. Ray and I were driving up to hit Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, tooling along on the freeway. The car in front of us slowed to a stop. We slowed to a stop. The car behind us didn't. He slammed into us, pushing us into the vehicle we followed. The airbag deployed and drama ensued. Four vehicles were involved, but everyone was able to walk away, thanks be to God. Whether or not our car will be totaled remains to be seen.

Happy to be off the freeway, we walked up to Whole Foods and ordered a juice and a smoothie, and waited for a friend to come and get us. (Thanks, friend Fern!) While we waited for our order, I chatted with a truck driver. This sunny gentleman has been exposed to a toxin from a previous job. The result is that he gets headaches if he uses a cell phone or spends too much time around wireless internet. Yikes! Wireless internet is pervasive in many cities. The cool thing: in spite of his burden, he radiated positivity and gratitude. Loving it.

This is the 1st day of the feast that I didn't use my Vita-mix.

Today's juice:
cucumber/celery/spinach/parsley/lemon (from Whole Foods)
apple/beet/ginger/wheatgrass (from Whole Foods)
grapefruit
coconut water with Vitamineral Green

So grateful for the health and safety of my daughters and the privilege of being here to guide them through life.
