365 Day Blog Challenge - Day 164

Phone call that changed your life?

I was working one day and I got paged. The number that was on the pager was not my mom's number, but my aunt's number. That right there gave me chills. It was not normal for them to page me. 

I called back and my uncle Larry answered. I said that I was paged and told him who I was and he said one second, here is your mom. I heard it in his voice. My heart dropped. 

My mom got on the phone and she told me that my cousin Trena killed herself the night before. I fell to my knees, dropped the phone and just cried. It took me a few minutes to pick the phone back up and I told my mom I was on my way. I remember calling my friend Heather to come pick me up, but I didn't want to wait for her to drive all the way to my work, so she met me at my aunt's house. 

Definitely the phone call that changed my life.
