Follow up to car accident....

Yesterday Antonio and I went to clean out the rest of the stuff out of my car and while we were there the man at the towing company was telling us how my accident sure gave him a scare. I asked why and he said that when the lady got to the hospital, she kept asking for her baby that was apparently with her. She kept on until they called the cops who called the towing company and asked them to go look in the car and make sure there wasn't a baby still in the car. He said it was the scariest thing. Can you imagine going to look in a car that you have towed for a baby that must be dead since you haven't heard any cries in 2 hours!?!

On top of that, I got a call today from the police officer that was on the scene of the accident on Wednesday. He was calling to see how Tatum and I were doing which I thought was very nice of him. I gave him some insurance info that he needed and then I told him I felt rude not asking how the other driver was doing because I knew she was hurt pretty bad. After a long silence, he said "Did you not hear??" To which I responded, "Um, no?" He then said, "The other driver was actually INTOXICATED."

Now please explain to me this....

-WHO is intoxicated at 9:15 in the morning???
-WHO DRINKS and DRIVES??
-WHO DRINKS, DRIVES, and does a scratch off lottery ticket!?!?

I was SO MAD this morning when I heard this. I know I need to forgive this lady and I know Tatum and I weren't hurt, but it makes me mad that she could have killed us! I keep thinking over and over of all the stories you see in the news about wrecks that drunk drivers are involved. Usually the drunk driver walks away and the other driver is killed or seriously injured. I am thankful and blessed that this situation isn't what happened to me, but still, I am just MAD. Forgiveness will come in time, right?

God is GREAT and there is not a doubt that He protected you and Tatum during this wreck. Continue to pray for the other lady and maybe this accident will bring a change in her life.
