Grateful: (adjective) Feeling or showing an appreciation of kindness


So i had a life changing experience after the heat game, and i have been debating whether or not to write about it because of the how much this experience meant to me. But it's just too good of a story not to share. After the Heat basketball game me and my friends decided to go to the Pie in SLC. Some of my friends from Dixie came to visit and i was dying to see them. and let me tell you it was awesome seeing them. After we said all said our goodbyes and drive safely's we all piled into a car, we decided to head up to one of the kid's stepdad's house kinda by park city. (as if we didn't have a fun enough day already). well as we were driving you up a hill, we noticed that there was what looked like a car coming straight at us. we were on a hill so we couldn't really tell because of the funky lights as we got closer we realized THAT A CAR WAS COMING STRAIGHT AT US. right when i saw the car i said a quick prayer in my heart and soon got this peaceful feeling that we were all gonna be okay. the driver of my car, quickly turned the wheel (which we were lucky he didn't over rotate because if so we would have ended up in a ditch) the car coming straight at us missed us by a foot! ya know when you are driving on the freeway and car gets super close you and you feel a slight little breeze of the car passing you? yeah we felt that. when we pulled over we all got our groundings and i called 911. i felt bad because i had no idea what road i was on. It was the weirdest thing ever, the car driving on the opposite side of the road kept going in a straight line, not swerving or anything. i know for a fact our Heavenly Father was watching over us. it was the closest to death i have ever been in my life. but probably one the most spiritual moments of my life as well. I will never forget the undeniable spirit i felt when i was thanking my Heavenly Father, that i was alive. There's more crazy elements of the story but they are just wayy to spiritual to share on the internet.

The Lord answers prayers in mysterious ways. This was an answer to everyone in the car, in one way or another. This sounds cheesy but that experience literally has changed my life. I know for a fact that i am alive because Heavenly Father was watching over 4 very blessed teenagers. i know we all have our own mission in this life and that ours is waiting to be fulfilled. life is precious, that's for sure. I am so thankful to have a Heavenly Father that listens and answers our prayers.
