As I got on the bus, I found two pennies on the bus floor. I was standing in the flexible center section of the bus. The bus is really two buses put together with an accordion middle. I usually stand there because I have a backpack on and there are people that need the seats more than I do.
The bus driver wasn't announcing all the stops and the windows were all fogged up. I thought I had calculated correctly, but when I got off the bus, I was two stops past my stop and over a mile in the wrong direction. I sighed, took a deep breath, reminded myself that God had a reason for me to miss my stop, and then looked around. There was a subway stop right there. I huffed it over there and got on the train.
The subway sometimes confuses me. I knew I had to head back toward Manhattan. I got on the train and looked up at the indicators on the wall. They said we were headed in the other direction. I found that strange since it looked like the last stop on the train (the tracks ended). I asked and found out I was on the right train. The indicators on the subway wall didn't change until after the second stop in the other direction. As I got off the train, I found one more shiny penny on the sidewalk.
Even though I was later than I anticipated, I still made it to work well before the office opens. I like to get here early to get work done. In fact, I had enough time to write this post before anyone even came into the office for the morning.
I am reminded again that my plans don't always work out. For some reason I was meant to take a different path to work and arrive a little later. I didn't get wet, I found some money, and I got to work on time.
All is good and I am blessed. May you all be blessed today too even if you end up taking a different path than planned.
