My Weekend!


This past weekend had some fun and some drama... ...Saturday afternoon I went to Corinth, where I got my haircut and when I came out to the parking lot and got in my car, a young woman holding a baby, came up to me and asked me for a ride, then I didn't even have time to reply when a man in a Dodge Durango pulled up behind my car, started yelling at the woman( profanities) for her to get in the vehicle.. She got into the vehicle, and then as he squealed his tires as he moved about 2 parking aisles over, then she got out, and opened the back door and started to put the baby in the car seat.. They were there about 5 minutes arguing..I sat there, watching.... The parking lot of the shopping center was covered up and people were driving in and put, but I sat there.... I could hear all the vulgar, hateful things he was saying to her. She was crying and the baby was crying...... She then shut the back door after she had buckled the baby into the car seat... and then as she tried to get in , he started pulling away... yelling at her... Then he yelled" Get in... I'm going to kill you! "..... Well the woman actually got int the car.... At that point , he sped out of the parking lot....... I wrote down his tag number and the description of the vehicle while I was watching all of this... I then called 911 on my cellphone.. I told the officer that I didn't quite know what to do, but I was not going to simply ignore what I saw and heard and then something happen to the young woman and baby.. The policeman asked me what state the tag was.. That, I didn't write down, but I thought it was Mississippi.. In my mind , I could visualize a Mississippi tag... He said that was okay.. He said I did the right thing and they had some cars in the area and they would check it out and see if they could see him...


I have been thinking about this since it happened.. I've said countless prayers for this woman and child that I do not know.. But I know God knows them......



Then last night, I took my daughter and 2 of her friends to WINTER JAM in Tupelo, Ms

My son went with the church... The arena was packed, but it was fun... I still have some ringing in my ears though...lol
Please pray for my friend, Tracy's grandmother... Mrs.Mary.... She had a stroke yesterday and is in the hospital.. She is responding so that is good, but they said she is paralyzed for now... Please keep them in your prayers...

I hope all of you have a wonderful week..

Bunches of hugs....

What a terrible predicament to be in (you AND that young woman). I will say prayers for all involved in your post.

Oh, my dear. You did the right thing. That poor woman. And that poor, poor baby. I hope the police found them and I hope that they put her in touch with someone who could help her get out.

I feel so bad about that woman. Whatever her situation, I will pray for her. You did the right thing. I am also still praying for your hubby to get a job.

What a horrible experience. I cannot imagine the helpless feeling that you must have felt. Thank goodness that you were able to get the tag number. Perhaps someone will find her and help her.

I will pray for Mrs. Mary. Strokes can be so devastating.

Steph,

That was such a sad situation - I'm glad you stayed and tried to help out - from the safety of your vehicle. Be careful in situations like that - sometimes the aggressor has been known to turn on friends, family members or onlookers.

Hopefully, the police pulled the man over....
