Stretch! said the Balloon Lady


The Universe and God tells me things. We all name these things differently. Intuition, whispers. My husband says it’s just coincidence. Anyway, this was one of those bright moments where I was caught off guard and had to pause.

I was merging onto the expressway, trying to get up to 65mph so a smooth transition could be made. There was a car in front of me going a stately 55, but too slow for my impatient self.

I looked for an out, an opportunity to pass this chugger. Nothing. The vehicle was going the posted speed limit, but everyone else was going faster and I wanted to go faster, as well.Then I noticed it.

The license plate read:


I was transfixed. Compelled. I had to drive behind this Silver Sentra. Afterall, how could I not when the message was clearly directed towards me?


Our routes diverged, but I tried to see the driver of this small car that told everyone it loved them.
She was slight with white hair that appeared as a halo in the setting sun.

The power of those three words.

Have you repeated that phrase today? To someone else? To yourself?

(*Occasionally I re-visit entries and re-post, tweak or develop something different. This is one of those.)
