Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Scary morning

Lets hope the family doesn't read this and if they do, Kelly don't you dare tell the parental units.

This morning I left work right at 730am hoping to get ready for the 9:15 church service. Cops were everywhere so I went down I-75 going between 65-70. During my peaceful drive listening to my Disney Musical cd I saw this car beside me merging over, but assuming he would go about his business. He in fact was not going back to his lane and kept going. I slammed the horn but it was too late, he realized he was headed in my direction and sharply turned to the left. Everything went in slow motion but I saw him slide all the way to the left hitting the wall and bouncing off. After his bounce, the car slid towards me and I had to put my foot on the gas to make sure I passed him. I saw him slide and I kept going as I was on I-75 and although a Sunday morning, there were cars besides me and I could not pull over. I saw him slow down right in the middle of the road. I saw cars slamming their brakes but I was too in shock to do anything. I had my cell phone and dialed 911. I dialed, it rang. Dialed it again and I couldn't understand the operator so I quickly yelled what happened and where.

This guy had to choose between hitting me and hitting the wall. He hit the wall and I do not know what happenned. I wish I could find out. I have prayed for him. Please do the same.

I could have died today. I could have been seriously injured, changing the way I live my life. I do not think I have over dramatized this.

We were able to make it to church today. It was the first service since the new construction has been completed. We sat in the theater (a large room with live music, the speaker is broadcasted on a big screen). We sat with Tymm and Laura and the new series is on God's love and how wonderful and big and awesome it is. they ended with Indescribable by Chris Tomlin. Wow, another great service. This mornings event scared me and just made me wonder why I wasn't hit by that car. everything was so slow but he could have easily hit me and it would have done a lot of damage at the speed he was going. I wonder if he died. I wonder if walked out okay. I wonder why I didn't find a way to turn around and check. I don't know. there was really no place for me to pull over and I was so shaky I didn't know what to do.

Oh Amy, Praise God you were not hurt in any way. Prayer's being sent up for the man in the other car. I am so thankful he didn't hit you and chose to hit the wall.
Don't beat yourself up to much that you didn't turn back around. You did call 911. Which is great!
My husband cousins daughter, (hope that made sense) who was 18 and about to start her first year of college was killed in a car wreck 2 days before the 4th of july. And one day before she left on vacation with her parents to Burmuda.
Her 15 year old sister was with her and lived.
Big HUGS for you Amy.
And continue prayers for the driver of that car.

FYI! I have peace! I called work because several employees left after me that follow me home. Sharlene said she saw the car I was talking about the gentleman was outside of the car on the phone!

Woohoo!

I'm so glad you are okay and that the other driver was as well. I know the rush you get when things like that happen...I'm not sure I would have been able to pull over either. I'm not sure I'd be able to keep driving though because I'd be so shook up. I'd probably rush home and kiss my hubby ~ which I'm sure you did! :)

Wow that had to be awful to experience! So happy both you and the man are okay and unharmed!

Very scary and alarming to think how our lives can change in a split second. Glad to hear you both are OK.

Michelle said...

oh my goodness! what a scary morning indeed! Praise God you are ok and I said a prayer for the other driver that he wasn't seriously injured!
