RIP Betty

For those of you that don't know, I got in an accident the other day. I was on my way home from work and some guy rear ended me when I was stopped for a light. I am fine, a little whip lash, but fine. But Betty, my car, is not.
So here is the story,
It was Friday 27th at about 4:44pm and I was almost home from work. I was on my hands free talking to my sister about how great of a day I was having and she was telling me about her birthday a few days previous. I was stopped at a light, when I looked in my rear view mirror and saw the car behind me. It was going kinda fast and I was thinking that he is going to hit me. Thats when I heard the screeching tires and felt the jolt of the actual hit. He rammed me into the car in front of me. I don't remember that last part of the conversation with my sister (sorry), but I told her that I would have to call her back. She asked if I was okay and if I had gotten into an accident. I said yes and I would call her back. Come to find out later she got off the phone with me and called our mom to tell her and told her not to worry, that I was okay, and to give me ten minutes before she call me. Anyways, back to the accident, I was shaken and shocked. I finally pulled myself together to get out of the car and talk to the two cars. We pulled into a parking lot right by the scene to get out of the way while we waited for the cops. It was a little difficult to drive my car given the fact that the rear bumper was rubbing against the tire. Finally the cop came and asked what happened and took our information. We had to wait a little more for her to get it all together and enter it into the computer. The guy that hit me was found at fault and my car was towed away. The next day was when the adrenalin was gone and I could feel the pain. My neck hurt the most. That night I went to the ER to go get checked out. The took x-rays of my neck and lower back. They came back with no fractures. They said that I will just be sore for a few days and gave me muscle relaxers. Now I am just trying to figure out things with the insurance agencies. I've talked to mine, but I have not talked to the guy that hit me insurance. 
After it happened I was already being taken care of by the Lord. I had to walk home from the accident, which was close but still far, but as I was walking home a lady that had seen me by my car stopped and offered me a ride home. Later that night I talked to my roommate and found out that next week was have similar starting times for work, so I can still make it to work. Also a few amazing people from work said they could pick me up for work too. I have had people around when I need them and I am not badly hurt. The Lord truly looks out for His children! Thank you everyone that has helped me, and will help me in this trial.
