"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

My Knight in Shining Armor

I confess my life is a wonderful life. It is not perfect and of course I have experienced hardships, but truth be told, I love my life.

Today I had to go into the city (well for a country bumpkin like me it is a city) as I was in a jury pool. I thought I left early enough so that parking would not be an issue, but I was wrong. Our courthouse has limited parking, and the only parking spot I found required me, Jen, to parallel park.

Now before I go any further, let me share that I have driven all over Europe, northern Mexico, the Continental United States for many years, towed a vehicle, behind my truck, driven a RV and 5th Wheel...but, I will drive around the block over and over instead of parallel parking. Time was limited this morning and I knew that if I did not take this spot, I would not find another.

So what to do?
I called my Knight in Shining Armor! My Bill Knight, left an early meeting and came over and parallel parked for me! No questions asked, no laughter, just an incredible smile, and a hug to last until we sit for dinner!

I cannot imagine living a life any other than the one I have as the people in my life make all the difference to me. Oh and Bill I am not sure what I did to deserve such a man, but whatever it was, I am glad as you are, well, everything to me.
Love ya always
Jennifer

Aw how sweet! Brought tears to my eyes! My husband would have come and done the same for me, but believe me, I'm pretty sure he would have been laughing at me!

LOL! you know Jen, that is something that I would have done. Parallel parking is something I do not do; it was not even required for me to get my license.

You know, Catman, if he was near enough would have done the same for me as your knight did for you. :)

Hugs to you all
