My car needs a band-aid

I hit a deer on the way home from church Sunday.

I should be thankful because I’m not hurt…I have a weird mind-set; I never expect to be hurt, so am not sufficiently thankful when I don’t get hurt. I should be thankful.

I am thankful that I have been driving slower lately. I was only going 20 mph when I saw the deer. (This is unheard of for a Libbey) I've slowed down, but not that much. It was definitely a God Thing.

I'm thankful that only my bumper is cracked. My car could have been hurt so much worse. My dad and some of my friends have had had their windows cracked and their car all dented and scratched. It could have been worse.
Edit: It is worse. My car won't lock into gear and there's an unattached metal piece hanging in the front. I think it just holds the motor in--hopefully it's not important. Oh well.

I will still be thankful that I am unhurt. The deer cracked the middle of the bumper, so if it had come through the window I likely would have been hurt. It is hard for me to believe, but I actually am capable of being hurt. (Physically I mean; I get hurt emotionally easily enough.)

Lastly I’m thankful that I had not already washed my car. I don’t know why, but I am.

I have been thankful. May I complain now?
