Just a quick post with two specific thoughts for the day!

June 20, 2014

I read that Friday between 11AM – 5PM are the most dangerous hours to encounter “red light” runners.  Perhaps these are people trying to hurry for the weekend, or whatever their reason for doing it, you will encounter the most people who just keep going through a red light, on this day, between these hours.

Be careful.  I have seen some terrible accidents caused by these people, and yet they often walk away without harm to themselves or their vehicles.  Really crazy driving is just like holding a loaded gun and not paying attention to where you aim or when you shoot!

Locally a woman who admitted to being on meth, and being drunk, hit a twenty year old woman on a small motorcycle, and she killed her!  So just heed this warning and be a defensive driver.  You are not going to get where you are going any faster by being an impolite pig on the road.  (I am not calling you personally an impolite pig, but if you might be – you know who you are!)

You can SAVE lives by using manners and following the rules of the road.

I am NOT bragging, but just want to relate a little story with a good ending (for me).  I was buying corn on the cob yesterday and a very elderly little lady was looking it over closely.  I was near the bags and just ask, “Would you like a bag?”  She said yes.  She looked pretty grumpy.

As she filled the bag I noticed her bag had broken and I got her another and handed it to her.  She worked hard to get her corn in the second bag.  When she was done she looked at me and without a smile, said sincerely, “Thank you very much for getting me the bags.”

I simply replied, “Well, we are supposed to love one another, aren’t we?”

She then turned her head and looked at me and smiled, and said,”Well, yes, I guess we are.”  Then she pushed her cart and was on her way.

The point of this little story.  All I did was get her a couple of little bags, but in doing so, I know she felt like she knew someone cared enough to do it.  I could feel her being so pleased I mentioned loving one another.  She probably forgot all about it on the next aisle, but I have to say, I felt good about it all day because it was so easy to do a small kindness for someone.  It felt like I had shared something important with a total stranger.  I felt like my “love vibration” may have been passed along to another – and I hoped we all do some little kindness to lighten even a small burden for another human being each day.

Try it, you’ll like it!  Don’t forget – YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE  one hundred percent…perhaps not what happens, but ALWAYS, how you respond.  Take a breath, use your intellect, and handle it with class and decorum.

God bless you!

CREATE a beautiful day and be careful on the road – any road!  I read that Friday from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM is the most dangerous time for people to run red lights.  I have seen some horrific accidents, so please be cautious and courteous.  No ‘flipping anybody off” either…..you can cause road rage, or remember they could be just crazy enough to run into you!  Say a prayer for the offender instead – that person may be going through a difficult time – even a smile might lessen his or her problem.  Manners (like my grandma used to say) make a big difference in your response from others…even on the road..

God bless!
