Have you ever wanted to know the answer but, never get it till way later?
It was on August 17, 2011 when my families life was turned upside down. The day before I was driving a 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang from work to pick my son up from football practice. The car was not running well, I didn’t know if I would make it to the school or even home. When I finally arrived at the school, I phoned my spouse immediately to vent to him that I wouldn’t be in this situation if you would have done the tune-up like you said you were going to do. When the phone call ended I looked up into the sky and asked God can my life get any worse? To my dismay, the answer was YES! Less than 24 hours later my spouse fixed the car, by giving it a tune up. I went to bed while he and my son worked on the car.
In the morning, I took the kids to school and I headed to work. I normally would hear from my spouse around 9 am, 10 am came around and went then, 11 am came around and went then, to me frantically attempting every way possible to get a hold of him. At one point I even considered leaving work to go home to see if he was asleep. I eventually decided to not go home and I continued working.
Around the 2 o’clock hour I received a phone call. There was a man on the other end of the phone telling me he had my spouse. I sat and listened to him speak about things I could not conceive. I was in shock with what he was saying to me. I didn’t believe what he was saying to me. When I eventually got off the call. I sat at my desk, crying my eyes out.
Not knowing how I would tell my employer what happened, I was an emotional wreck telling one of the owners of the company. Then, when I was able to regain my composure I headed home to what I didn’t expect to see, feel or even want to deal with.
