Hey ya’ll! So, I had a long day yesterday. My nephew was assaulted by a teacher, my son has a stomach virus and I picked him up from school, I had a business meeting after getting him and so we got in a little late. I have new neighbors and they had ALL 5 parking spots including the two that comes with their townhouse. I asked if they could move their cars out of my two spots and the young lady, probably around 29 or 30 was very nasty and disrespectful to me. She appeared to have a sense of entitlement and felt that all her relatives could park there and I needed to find a parking space on the side street and walk back to my house. Her theory was I was told there was no assigned parking and I explained that each house had 2 parking spots for which she began to tell me that I only had one car so she can park in my other space. Whewww chile. Let me tell you that I almost forgot where God brought me from because I wasn’t always saved and I try to be Christ like in what I say and do. I almost forgot who I was and whose I was. But this one right here had me ready to get out of my car and slap her. I couldn’t for the life of me understand why you’ve been here for 1 week and I’ve been here for more than 4 years and you gonna try to tell me how things are done. Aside from that, where is your common decency and respect? Her father came out and was very nice and said to me she’s young and she doesn’t understand. Well sir that ultimately means you didn’t raise her properly. But, my response to him was well I’m a lot older than her and I don’t have time to be arguing and fussing over something like this. To me, it would be common courtesy to NOT take every space and the other homeowners/renters can’t even park in front of their door. Nevertheless, I attempted to smooth things over and start again but she was so arrogant she walked away and left her dad out there talking to me. I got no rest last night because my mind was racing and I was so upset about the whole scenario. I was tossing, turning and talking to God constantly throughout the night. I think I may have gotten 2-2.5 hours of sleep at the most because I was so upset. I went out to walk my son’s dog this morning around 6 a.m. and she was coming back from walking her dog. She didn’t say anything to me and I didn’t say anything to her. I just remember my parents always telling me you get more bees with honey than vinegar and manners don’t cost you anything. Listen, I almost forgot but God continued speaking to my heart to remind me not to go back to the person he delivered me from being and allow him to fight my battles. Okay God, I’m listening. Maybe I’ll feel better now that I’ve gotten this off my chest, but whisper a prayer for me cuz I’m gonna need some sleep.
Until Next Time,
