The Long Ride Home


When I was four or five years old, I was so excited to learn that I would be going on a train ride with my grandmother to Alabama. When we got ready to go back to Memphis, my home town, my grandmother and I took a cab to the train station and when we got there, my grandmother changed her mind, for no apparent reason, and told the driver to take us to the bus station. I cried all the way home on the bus.

I can still see the telephone poles and remember being lost and mesmerized by the telephone wires as I gazed at them on the long ride home. When we arrived home, we learned that the train we were supposed to be on had derailed and a lot of people had been injured or killed. I didn't realize the significance of this experience until I grew up. I am amazed that my grandmother knew for some reason not to get on that train. I don't think she fathomed a train wreck, I think she just knew that something bad was going to happen and that she shouldn't get on that train.

What started out as a very upsetting time for me turned out to be the luckiest day of my life!

aw that's a nice story! Yeah I can get a bad feeling about something before it happens or a dream of the future event. That is what warns me. 😊

you must have a psychic grandmother. Good thing because it saved both your lives. Lucky is an understatement. Not your times to go back then. Glad you're here to tell about it. Like happy endings and I am sure you do too.

that is very interesting. Have you asked your grandmother about this or possibly your mom. It runs in the family most times. Or so it seems. But in some cases like mine it doesnt. Never second guess your grandmother or dismiss a sudden feelng that you shouldnt or should do somehthing.
