"What are you doing?" she screeched.
"Umm... parking the car? What does it look like?" came my sarcastic reply."Here?"
"No. Stop. Why?"
"What? Because it's an angle park and we're a one minute walk from the venue..."
"No. There could be another park so much closer. There will be another park. Keep on driving!"
"But I can see one right here. And what if there's not?""Have a little faith."
"What's faith got to do with it? This park is free and right here.""Blind faith. I know you have it in you. Drive."
"Okay, okay. Fine..."
I drove further on, thinking how ridiculous this exercise was. And then I saw it, a free spot right out the front. Waiting for me? I drove in without saying a word. We got out of the car and exchanged glances. Mine was a "well, whadda you know?" Hers said, "That there is what happens when you have faith."
You know when sometimes you remember memories from long ago and you wonder how that something that happened 11 years ago could pop into your head just like that... well this was one of those, from my uni days, except maybe it wasn't random or a coincidence either. Because when I remembered I most definitely was in need of a little courage, confidence and trust - blind faith.
Do you think we suddenly remember random memories from the past for a reason? I'd like to think so. Elisa xx
