My good deed for the day
My good deed for the day
For some time now I've believed in karma.With every thing that has happened to me, I have believe something good will happen.Right.
I was on my way to pick my son up from work.When I saw this woman on the shoulder of the road and she had a flat tire.I noticed right away it was lady I know from the past.I used to be very much in love with her in fact.So as I pull up behind her car I notice that she is on her cell phone.No doubt calling someone to help her.As I get out she notices me and says hi.I'm so glad to see you.We talk for a few minutes and go through the normal small talk.She begins to tell me how afraid she is about having strangers stop to help with all the stories for women being abducted right off the side of the road.As she's talking to me I can't help but look in her beautiful deep brown eyes and think back to times we were together.
I go about changing the tire.She bends down along side me to see if the tire had done any damage to the car.Because instead of just pulling over she drove a ways.To get out of traffic.When she bends down I can smell her perfume.The memories flood through my mind as if high tide has just come in.I finally put the hub cap on and stand up.I put me hand out to help her up.As she places her small hand in mine its all I can do to fight back tears.I was so in love with this woman at one that I would have died for her.We said go bye and I was off to pick up my son from work.
I see him coming out to get in the jeep and see him talking on the phone.He gets in and says to me,Mom just called and wanted me to thank you again for stopping to help her.
Is there anyone out there still in love with your ex?
Do you wish you could do it over and try to get it right this time? If you like I can explain why we split up.

You grew in differnt directions. The love doesn't end just because that happens, it may lay dormant for years until the hurt passes, but it will always be a part of you. Enjoy the knowledge that what you had together was good, but for any number of reasons, ended....Of course, there can always be a new beginnig...If you hadn't broken up, you would have missed out on what came next....Such is life with it's twists and turns which sometimes bring you full circle again. You are obviously a passionate, warm and caring man. Never regret what was in your YESTERDAY,instead look forward to your TODAY.|
