A Day to Remember

28 Jul

Whew! It has been one hell of a Friday! Where to start????? While talking and driving I was not paying attention to the speed, and ended up with ANOTHER ticket!!!! It wasn’t just any old traffic stop though. Because I didn’t stop at the exit, the first thing the officer said when I rolled down my window was, “Give me one reason why I shouldn’t arrest you right now for trying to allude me?!?” Oh. Shit. He said arrest and all I could do is an internal wall slide that was epic in every way. Then ANOTHER officer showed up. I just KNEW it was about to go down. Thank God I walked away with a ticket but as J’s brother told me, THEY DO NOT PLAY IN FAIRFAX and he ain’t never lied.

After that I called my mom and a man picked up and told me she had been in an accident and he was the tow truck driver. My heart sank. I was scared of what might be said next. I cautiously asked if she was ok and he reassured me she and my daughter were ok, but at that moment I HAD to talk to them. I began to feel enormous guilt for leaving my mom, for leaving Miss Beasley. I just wanted to know they were ok. I frantically called my dad and then the hospital. They got my mom on the phone and I was so happy to hear her voice. She let me know her and Beasley were fine and to turn around (oh y’all know I was headed to the 757 with NO bags! I don’t play!) and she would see me in the morning.

My nerves y’all…..today has jumped up and down all over them. I am going to decompress with a hot shower and then I’m headed to bed. The lesson today: God will take care of you….and show you what’s important.
