Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 18th day of October, 2017.

Yesterday was a mix of weather.  Ended with strong winds and rain.

Just have to share a lovely story.
So last week while waiting for the bus to go home – a vehicle stopped on the street and the driver was waving like mad. I was waiting with a young man from work and he didn’t recognize the vehicle so I decided to walk over as the light was red and see who it was. Well it was a gal that I met while riding the old bus. She asked me if I wanted a ride home. Well I said, “Yes, thank you.” As it turned out she gave me rides home all last week and even last night. Tonight was back to riding the bus. While waiting for the bus another gal I have been chatting with stopped and said let’s get out of the wind and rain and go inside the bus shelter, so we did. Our bus came a few minutes later and on we climbed. We chatted on the ride. When the bus made its’ first stop at West Edmonton Mall I noticed this red vehicle with Oilers flags and immediately thought of my friend. Laughed it off because I thought why would she be stopped in the bus lane at the mall ….. thinking must be a coincidence. So fast forward …. get off the bus at Lewis Farms (terminal) into a HUGE wind and rain….thinking oh, now waiting in this …. then I hear a voice and look over and in the parking lot see this red car and my friend. Here she was literally two cars ahead of the bus all the way. She figured it may have been divine intervention … meant to be that she picked me up …. we had a great laugh. Here she had seen me at the bus stop downtown but could not pull over and I was in the shelter and did not see her. By the time she could get stopped on the next street and parked, the bus had stopped and I was gone. How crazy GREAT is this. This is the best BUS STORY EVER. I am eternally grateful to my friend for coming to rescue me from this weather and driving me home.

P.S. forgot to mention that she had called me at work and left a message.  Note to self ….. keep checking messages.

 

Well here we are off to start another day.

It is still a bit windy but nothing like yesterday late afternoon.

I am forever grateful to know such thoughtful, kind and generous folks.

 

Have an awesome Wednesday.

Special Hello to: all FRIENDS all over the world.  You rock and I am blessed.

Always, Carol & Alvin
