Yesterday was one of the days that I love most in life. My Mother, Sister, Charli Beth and I had a kinda girls afternoon out. Which consisted of shopping and eating together. It's always nice to be able to catch up with my sis since we hardly ever get to see her anymore. It was a wonderful day except for not feeling good every now and then.

On the way home, Mom and I were talking about how we are going to decorate Charli's room and out of nowhere a burg. van flies up behind us. While almost hitting us in the tail end, they swerve to the other side of the roadway to the very far left emergency lane and driving close to 80-90 mph. The kept driving in this lane and then eventually go from this side of the road to the far emergency lane. Right up the road is a tanker semi, and four other cars that are all breaking due to one getting into the turning lane. I think my heart stopped at this time because I just knew that the van was going to hit the semi and injure unknown amounts of people. I have never in my life seen anyone drive this way. Never. I picked up my phone quickly and called into work to let them know that this driver is seriously out of their mind and for sure DUI. Before I could ever get out what I needed to say another lady that I know had called in also. Within minutes, this vehicle had knocked down several signs and wrecked in someones backyard. It's simply just crazy and completely selfish of someone that is drinking to get behind the wheel. They could of taken several lives within minutes. I hate knowing that this guy is in the same building as I am. I wish that I could just go let him have it, and let him hear how precious my Mother and child are to me so that maybe he will think next time. If thinking is even possible for this male. I have been told that this man was drinking and driving because he and his wife had been into it all day. Is this a good reason at all to get drunk? NO.
Sad part about this. He will be out within a couple of hours and will be given chance after chance by our court systems to do this again even with his 8 charges.

That is scary! And yes it only takes a minute for things to change in your life. We know that only too well at our house.
Sons are precious too =)

I agree,Paige..it was one of my favorite kind of days too. We need to make it a habit to get out more often. I love hanging out with all of my girls!!

I still think that I should have got to have a talk with that man -UGH!! We need to pray that people like that will get their lives together and find God and stop risking their lives and other people around them.

Love ya, Momma

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
