Take Time To Smell The Roses?...NOT
dearest amrita, my friend ...this post is for you!
yesterday when mom golden's doctor appointment was over, i stepped into the bright sunny november day to find the little red car which was our ride out!
as i headed toward this medical building i was so surprised to see this rose bush!
so amazing that it was still in bloom and with winter on its way yet!
oh! there were several pink bushes!
so, so beautiful and so, so still sharing their sweet fragrance!
and then i thought of my friend, amrita and i was so glad that bernie had recently charged my camera because now i wanted so much to send these roses to india to her and her mama.
oh aren't they just a miracle of our creator?
just behind another corner, i spotted a little red rose and it beckoned me!
and it introduced me to the rest of the family...oh! oh! oh!
just look at this beauty sunning herself and admiring her own shadow on the wall!
just around the last corner, appeared a bright splash of red berries on this bush.
for sure and i was really happy that i always carry my camera!
and yet another click!
can you see who is watching me in the distance?
watching me and with a pink paper waving at me in the breeze, and stuck on to the little red car's windshield wipers..NOT a ticket and if so for WHAT?
when i reached that little red car or "little red riding hood" as amrita calls it, i was shocked indeed that the paper WAS a ticket!
and you know for what?
well the man had written out that ticket, accusing the driver[me!] of parking in a handicap spot illegally!
the note said that the expiry date could not be seen and so "how do i know if the thing is legal or not?"...oh!
after i picked mom golden up, i hurried right to town and into the ticket department.
i knew mom golden was praying for me as i left her in the little red car.
i told the lady that this must be a mistake and that lady told ME that "no.. it wasn't".
i guess when she saw how upset i was, she forgave and cancelled the ticket.
and then she gave me some two way tape that i could put on my permit. she told me to tape it to the window and always up far enough for the expiry date to be seen by the ticket man..
oh!! if she hadn't of canceled that ticket, it would of cost 300 dollars to pay for it.. almost the WHOLE of my disability check!
i am so glad that the lord answered mom golden's prayer!
hmmmm...though, i really wonder if i should STILL take the time to stop and smell the roses!!
one thing though, i refused to be too upset to send on to princess amrita and her mama these two roses...a pink one and a red one and my wishes that amrita's poor knee aching with arthritis will get better!!
take care amrita, mama and sheeba....love terry
