This is gonna be a very short post. No, it really is!!
Just wanted to share what could have been a disastrous morning and how a little miracle turned things around.
I was running for the bus. I saw it there. The driver saw me. But he’d already pulled away from the “official” bus stop. He was however, stopped at the lights. I banged on the window but he blew me off. Nope, wasn’t gonna let me on.
Problem with that was there’s only two buses an hour from my parents’ place to the train station. The next one would have made me late for the temp job I’m doing today (yep, more work coming in!).
So as I stood there, trying to ring for a cab (I’m sorry, the office hours for 13 Cabs are 9am-5pm – are you kidding me?!), I shout out a quick prayer.
Now, my friend Dr Jay doesn’t like the word ‘prayer’. But I think its non-denominational. At least, as far as I’m concerned anyway. So I simply asked for a miracle. Pretty much those words.
The next thing I know, there’s a woman in a car trying to catch my eye, asking by mime if I want a lift. She’d seen me standing there (although she hadn’t seen the bus take off) and turned her car around to check.
And wouldn’t you know it, she was going exactly in my direction.
So Beverley, I hope you enjoy your job today working on the school crossing. And I wish you many blessings for your kindness!
this made me smile and gave me some hope too! there are helpful, loving, open and kind people everywhere- I guess we just have to ask for to see or find them:)
It’s not a miracle. God gives us what we need but not what we want. – It takes a lot to understand that – The problem is that people want a lot of crap – cause we are greedy and selfish and spoiled – and God doesn’t give away crap. So we think God is not listening. If we would only ask for what we need we would get it 100% and your story would be the norm rather than the exception. So no it wasn’t a miracle it was just normal.
I love your story. I makes me feel like there is hope in the world.
This is so beautiful, Svasti. There are so many wonderful people on the world… you’re one of them.
@Amy – yay, it was such a wonderful experience, and lovely to connect with someone I would never otherwise have met.
@buddha – I’m with ya there. Not everyone likes to call it “God” in quite that same way, but I know what you mean. Its true – if we can simplify what we think we need, then things definitely flow. I still say it was a miracle, because I think miracles are in the eye of the beholder. And it completely saved my day.
@CC – yes, me too. The woman said to me that when she saw me she felt she had to turn around and stop. It was brilliant!
@Amanda – why thanks!! There definitely are plenty of wonderful people in the world.
Glad to hear about your fortunate coincidence….
(I’ve reputation to uphold….)
Oh thanks Jay… I know, you’re a cynic and all… 😉
