Was It 'meant To Be' That I Was There, At The Right Time?


It was afternoon on a regular sort of day. Nothing out of the ordinary was going on. I was suddenly overcome with a great urgency, a sort of restlessness. I just had to go someplace, I didn't know what, or why. I got in my car and started driving.

I have two daughters, who were old enough to walk to and from a friends house alone, but still young enough that I would still want to check up on them. It was just about the time that they were due to be coming home. I couldn't shake this urgent agitation, this need to do something. I thought that maybe it was about my kids. When I was only a few blocks from my home, I saw my girls on the sidewalk on their way back home. I knew then that they were fine and the feeling I was having was not about them. I waved to them from the car and yelled to them to go on home and I would be back shortly. I still had that horrible agitation feeling, though. I kept driving.

I reached the point where my street ended at a larger street that crossed it. You could only turn left or right. I planned to turn left, inexplicably though, I found myself turning right. Same thing happened a few minutes later when the road I was on curved to the left with a smaller street branching out to the right. I went right, which meant that I was practically headed back home having made somewhat of a half of a 'circle' around my neighborhood. Still this urgent, nagging, agitated feeling, I had no clue what, or who or why.

I was sandwiched between two larger SUV type vehicles that had tinted windows, one in front of me and one behind me. The sort of dark tinted windows where you can't see any of the road ahead of that vehicle through their windows. I noticed the SUV in front of me slow to almost a stop, then it veered to the left, crossing the center line and then moved back where it belonged as if it were being steered around some obstacle in the road. I slowed to a stop to see the possible obstacle and saw nothing, then I looked down, lower to the ground and was shocked to see a toddler, a little blonde haired girl, standing in the middle of the street, all alone. First, I was shocked that the guy in front of me simply drove around the child. I immediately jumped out of my car, blocking traffic behind me on purpose, and ran to pick up this little girl, barely old enough to walk. I was holding her and looking around for some adult that I figured would be along shortly. Then from one of the houses right there, mom came running out. She was grateful of course, and I, having raised some very active tots, was not judgmental because that does happen, occasionally one sneaks out the door and goes exploring.

I got back in the car and headed home, I no longer had that agitated feeling. I have often thought over the years since then, that If I almost didn't notice the child in the road-because the guy in front of me had those super dark windows so I could see nothing of what was in front of him- and I almost didn't notice this little girl at first because I wasn't at first looking that low to the ground, what may have happened had I not been there? Would the driver of the car behind me have seen her? I almost didn't, and I was in a low to the ground car, whereas the car behind me was a higher up SUV. Would the driver have looked down, as I did? Did I actually maybe save this child? I am so awed by this experience. It happened to me and I can hardly believe it. More strange that it wasn't people that I knew, even though they lived a short way from my own house, basically strangers. If my feelings are correct and I was there at the right time to prevent a tragedy, I am so grateful, so awed.

amzi,missy, and Anne too, thank you so much for your acknowlegement and encouragement. I am almost in tears right now, of gratitude. I really needed a pick-me-up right now. I have many troubles of the earthly plane, and beginning to lose hope. These gifts I have, I know they are special, and meaningful. I have helped others and occasionally, my children by listening to that inner voice, and I know I am blessed. Thank you for giving me a pep talk.

I agree with the previous comments. It certainly was a blessing that you were in the right place in the right time. To me, this is an example of a psychic gift at its finest. I'm glad that you were able to make a difference and save this little girl's life.

You don't have to be a "great" psychic or even have your abilities at their peak to make a difference. Even that little 'nagging feeling' you had made an impact - you saved a child's life.

This was a beautiful story.

I believe you were supposed to be there as well! Not only for the little girl but, for the other drivers on the road, the child's mother, and you yourself of course along with so much more than we know.It's not impossible to think that the choices you have made through out your entire life, caused you to be exactly where you were meant to be when you were meant to be there! Just think of it as, had you made one decision in your life to take a different step, or take a different turn, or say yes instead of saying no, you most likely would not have had been there at the exact moment you were! I would like to personally thank you for listening to your intuition and doing what you did! From a mother of 3 you are a Hero:) I hope you truly are blessed for the rest of your eternity! ❤ ❤

Yes, I have learned that I must heed these sudden, strange feelings that I occasionly get. Not everytime I heeded a possible warning or message did anything actually come of it. There were times that it almost seemed like a false alarm, like when I am driving to someplace that I go to so often that the route I take is almost automatic, suddenly I decide sometimes at the last possible second to take a different street. I arrive at my destination, having experienced no trouble, so I just shrug. Maybe it was a 'false alarm' or maybe, had I been there at that time, something may have happened. Either way, I am grateful for my strange intuition.

All things happen for a reason. You were of course meant to be there for that little girl because it was not her time to go. I think also though, it showed you something incredible so you had your own personal role in that. The guardian easily could have come out and saved her but it was meant in your life path for it to be you. It's taking you in some ways to a new level of understanding and belief.

Thanks for sharing.
