THE GIRL ON THE ROAD – A SIGN FROM THE ALMIGHTY…?

 

 It all started off as another usual Friday.. Me as always waiting for the day to end so that I can enjoy my weekend. And I was on my way to office blissfully ignorant of the events that were to follow. Something so simple yet life changing that it made me wonder…

I get off the share auto at my usual stopping – OLYMPIA. The clock strikes 1.20… Oh it’s almost time I have to rush to my floor. The usual last minutes thoughts brushing through my mind as vehicles buzz past me.

How am I gonna to cross the road. Where is the bloody policeman? I curse myself. I look around waiting for somebody to help. Isn’t there a soul around here who could actually empathize with my situation? I give up and get ready cross the road myself despite the rush.

And there she was gripping my hand firmly and saying “HOLD MY HAND FIRMLY”. The next minute or so was a gentle breeze.. I just did what she said trusting her words. We cross and she smiles that heavenly moment. Something so surreal that it left me in a daze.. I smile back and say “THANK YOU”. She just pauses for a moment and it seemed like eternity…And then her parting shot “DON’T MENTION WE SHALL MEET AGAIN” She waves and turns back to her destination as I move towards mine.

Honestly I have never seen someone like her.. Can a girl be this pretty and still have kindness in abundance? Was it merely an incident or was it sign from the almighty…? Was she my guardian angel.. ? Will I meet her again…? My gut feeling says I will and I am just waiting.

Maybe it’s God’s way of saying Even if ur on the BRINK JUST TRUST AND HOLD ON TO ME I will take you to your DESTINATION
