Sometimes we have to wait. It is just a fact if life. I am parked outside the homeless shelter waiting for the young woman I give a ride to. I think she got up late since I saw her through the windows run into what looks like the cafeteria .
I have a meeting to get to an hour away after dropping her off. I have let the organizer know I will be late. We had arranged to go early today so I could get to my meeting but for whatever reason she is running late.
I could get upset, I choose not to. We all do the best we can. I am reminded by these people – adults of all ages along and with strollers and young children- and bags of things- so many bags- that there are bigger things to worry about besides being late. It is not worth it to get upset. We are all just doing the best that we can.
More to the story. Turns out she had been sick and wasn’t going to school. She had texted me but my phone was in the car. I wish I could take of her. I hope she feels better. A sweet girl in a challenging situation.
