Hit By Lightning And Survived

When I was about 15 years old, I am now 37 years older. You can guess or figure the math, lol. Anyways I was babysitting 3 small children as was a common thing for me to earn some money back then. Any how this one night I'm on the phone and I wasn't paying any attention to the storm outside, but the next thing you know BAM I was thrown across the room into a chair all the electricity went out. So everything was dark. When I came to the right side of my head was completely numb I thought it was gone. I was SO scared afraid to touch the right side of my head. But I touched it and by the grace of Almighty God my head was there. I didn't know who I was or where I was. I heard the children crying and shouting "Thunder went pop Kimmie went BOOM. I don't know how long this went on. But the parents came home and found us in quite a mess. The children all shouted at their parents "Thunder went pop Kimmie went BOOM. So the mother takes me home and they told my parents what happened. Apparently this had happened to one of them before but they didn't ground the trailer, DUH! My parents thought I was on drugs. I permanently lost hearing in my right ear the lightning had traveled through the phone line and BAM knocked me for a loop., I am so thankful to God for keeping me alive as it could have killed me. So you know for sure I DO NOT TALK ON THE PHONE WHEN THERES THUNDER AND LIGHTNING!!!
