Right up front and most importantly, she is fine, unhurt, and healthy.

EVERY single lesson she had in Drivers Ed kicked in and she remained calm, cool and collected. She knew not to panic and she knew to keep her hands firmly on the wheel.
Her back drivers side wheel CAME OFF while she was driving. As the car spun, both of her passenger side tires shredded and went flat.
If you look up and see just how perfectly straight her car ended up on a front lawn, missing the telephone pole and the rock wall in front of her, you know how extraordinarily fortunate we all are today.
For the local folks, Bella's car was the one facing in the wrong direction on the lawn of #422 Watch Hill Road.
From another house, a retired police officer, Gary, checked on her. He did, at first, think she was drinking - but when he saw the tire and further spoke to her, he knew she wasn't.
I insisted to Bella she is never allowed to disavow the power of woo-woo. There were angelic powers in play last night. Even she said it's a miracle she didn't get hurt.
Today, we took care of having the vehicle towed and junked.
Next up - getting a new car.
It's a beautiful night
And I know everything
Is gonna be alright
Yes now I know
It'll be alright
