Today on the way home I ran a red/stop light and I got stopped for it. Stuff was on my mind and I just went right on through the intersection and ran that light. It’s been awhile since I have been pulled over by the police and I did get a citation/ticket. Oh well, life goes on and my wallet gets dinged for a fine.

  1. So glad it was just a ticket. Not an accident. Not a crazy cop acting weird. Glad you didn’t hurt anyone else — because that would be worse than any of it! So glad it was just a fine. God bless my friend. And so grateful you’re not angry or upset about it but sharing it and finding a the silver lining anyways. Hugs.


      1. Baby, it happens. I’ve been there. Being lost in thought is a good thing. But when driving…. we’ll keep focus. So glad you’re okay. And even more excited that you are in a place of goodness and joy about this ticket. Money ain’t nothin’ but a thing… I hope your thoughts are glorious and informative of what’s next. xo.
