Somebody saved a life...Anna Wallace
Over the weekend we traveled to Murrels Inlet, SC to visit our dear friends Melissa and Willie Lee. These are the kind of friends you pick up with even though you've not seen each other in a year. And when it's time to leave, we feel like we didn't get enough time together.
Sunday night we hopped in their boat and drove to The Point to watch the sunset. Anna Wallace, Melissa and I went to walk on the jetty while the guys played Bocce.
A man walked out to put stuff in his boat and his toddler followed him without his knowledge. Suddenly the child went under. Popped up and went under again. Melissa reacted first and pushed her daughter toward the water urging her to grab the baby. Anna Wallace ran out and saved the child while I stood and yelled to the man the baby was under water. He had no idea his child had even followed him.
So we walked away feeling terrified at what could have been and amazed at how God put us in the right place at the right time.
I hope you find yourself in the right place at the right time.
