It has been a crazy, crazy, couple of weeks! First, I was in a jury trial in another county for three days with my boss/attorney. I go with him to trial and keep things moving, organized, ready to submit, that sort of thing. I am also listening to the direct and cross examinations and making notes as to what to point out in an effort to make our client look good and the defendant to look BAD!! I have to be as familiar with the case as the attorney does and it is both mentally and physically exhausting! I just feel brain dead!
THEN Tuesday afternoon, after getting back in town, I get a call from Cameron a/k/a Cammie Pie telling me HE had just had an accident! And to make matters worse, he hit a guy on a motorcycle!! I quite nearly had a heart attack! I was not far from him at all so I get to the scene of the accident really quickly, before the police, fire trucks, paramedics and ambulance!
The man was lying in the street with "pieces" of motorcyle strewn everywhere! I run over and kneel down by him and ask him what hurts and are you alright and what can I do??? He was SO SWEET! He was actually cracking jokes and laughing and I was just floored! Turns out, Cameron did not actually hit him (which is a good thing) he jumped off the motorcycle when he saw that Cameron did not see him. They were both going very slow as Cam was turning left and this guy was coming to a stop on the road Cam was turning onto, and Cameron did not see him at all.
I am telling you I have just been feeling like I am having an out of body experience since this happened. I am reminded of how short life is and how things can change in an instant! I am always very mindful of this, but it just brought it all up to the surface andI have been so emotional!
The man was okay, no broken bones, and for that I am so THANKFUL to God for taking care of him.
He was, however, riding a brand new Harley Davidson that he had had for 2 months! UGH!
AND we thought that Cameron's car only had a flat and was knocked out of line and were not even going to turn in a claim on his car, however, after taking it yesterday to have it "aligned" we get a call telling us the frame is bent, all kinds of damage underneath the car so..........not good!
I just have visions of CANCELLATION of insurance and rates going through the ROOF! I just keep reminding myself that I am so thankful that neither one of them was hurt seriously and for that I am so blessed!
I am a worrier though, don't know why, I wish I wasn't, but I am! I have not slept well at all since it happened and I don't want to let either one of my boys out of my site! I have called and checked on the other guy several times to see how he is and he is good. Sore, but good.
I am sure I will get better as I calm down and destress..........I wish my boys were two again.....
Have a great weekend!
