COPS AT MY DOOR!

Posted on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 in Jay's Blog

Police-Car

Yesterday, I was at home in FULL chill-mode planning a trip with my wife when the door bell rang. I looked out of the upstairs window to see who could possibly be at my door. To my surprise, two County police cars were parked in front of my house. I was like, “What in the world?!?” I immediately got up to see what was going on. As I was getting up to head to the door, I quickly realized that I looked rather “crazy” in my white undershirt, “Carolina Tar Heels Blue” gym shorts and black dress socks (picture that). I figured that I wouldn’t see anyone I knew so I headed downstairs and opened the door.

As I opened the door, two officers were walking across my lawn to inform me that they received a 911 call from a cell phone in my house. I informed them that there must be a mistake. As soon as I said that, another officer walked from around the side of my house and informed them they had the wrong address. As soon as he saw me, he called my name with a big smile on his face. This was one of those proud moments for me because I remember when this officer was a kid and now he was an adult and leading a very productive life. I remember teaching him and offering advice during those “critical” pre-teen and teen years. He even traveled with the crew for different events. He was a good kid and had so much promise. Now he was living it!

I was excited to see him! I didn’t care that he was “on the clock”, “in uniform” or carrying a “Glock”. I went and gave him a big hug and told him how proud I was of him. His colleagues had a look of “smiling-shock” on their faces when they saw this “911 reunion”. This was a quick reunion because they had call they needed to investigate. In the midst of all of the hoopla, I forgot exactly how crazy I was looking until I got back inside. Lol!!!

I firmly believe that random visit was not random at all and was for both of us. It was good to see this young man living out his potential. It was also a reminder of how quickly those developmental years go by. I was honored to play a small part in that process in his life and it inspired me to continue planting seeds into the lives of the children that God allows me to meet. We never know who we might be entertaining and who they will become!
