I turned to tell her of my gratitude and humbleness but she grabbed my hand and squeezed. It seems she saw the look on my face after the cart had careened into the side of my car and knew that I was a woman on my last nerve.

I hugged her and we headed for our cars, knowing that life had put us together that day.
I watched as she disappeared inside her car and smiled just a little at the image of the driverless car heading out of the parking lot. Gosh, she sure was tiny.
Sighing to myself, I started the engine of my car, ready once again to take on the little battles waiting for me at home.
As I opened the front door to my condo, I felt strength and obstinacy return to my soul. Turning to face life once again, I held out my hands, turned my palms up and said to an empty room, "Bring it on Karma Fairy, bring it on."
