I've Crossed Over to the Dark Side

Yes people, that is right. Jillian Hazel is now a criminal.

It all started out innocently enough. I woke up half an hour late because I was having this insane dream that I had to test the snooze button on all these alarm clocks...not realizing I was really pushing the snooze on my own. I got up, showered and got ready in a hurry, and went upstairs.

By this time, it was the time I normally leave because I couldn't find anything to wear. I tried to grab food as quickly as I could, but the toaster takes some time, and my mom needed to talk to me about my weekend plans. Fifteen minutes late, I walked out the door.

My schedule allows for exactly 15 minutes of flex time between when I should arrive @ Whatcom and when my first class starts. So if I found an immediate parking spot, I wouldn't be too late.

Then I got stuck behind a school bus. On the Guide. It stopped at like every other house...and I couldn't pass it because I was on the Guide. Finally I was able to turn off onto Horton, and then I began flying down Cordata. My class started at 8:30, and it was 8:29.

You can see where this is going, right?

I didn't see the motorcycle cop til it was too late. I looked down at my speedometer...yikes. So, it happened. I got my first ticket. According to my parents, it was inevitable with my lead foot tendencies, but why did it have to happen today of all days?

I was 15 minutes late to my class.

You know what, Jill? Don't worry about it too much. Things don't just happen to those whom love Him -- They happen for a reason.
Who knows? Maybe some driver would have tried to pull on to the free way and nailed your car into oblivion...but instead...that bus got in the way... And maybe that police bike hadn't pulled you over, some moron would have crushed your car in the roundabout (don't tell me that won't happen...Man, some old people are crazy)...

Any, cheer up Jill. You have your health, you have your family and you have your friends. Not to mention the one and only God who loves you and watches after you.

Bye bye for now...

P.S. Give me a call when you get the chance
