For the everything-happens-for-a-reason file.

A few weeks ago, a red light failed to register in my consciousness, and I wrecked my car. (Wow, my post comes up first when I Google "I just wrecked my car"!) Today, I was driving my new car down the snowy hill near my house, with no lights or stop signs, and a young woman on a light blue moped (which she had been driving on the sidewalk) rode right out in front of me, from a side street that had a stop sign. I had been watching her and wasn't going to drive through until I saw her stop, and so there was never the slightest chance that I could have hit her. She had never even turned her head to look my way.
