A Walk To Remember
No not the movie nor was it a romance... it's about my day today, got a lucky one or was it? Upon going to work, my motorcycle begun to wiggle. I was pretty sure one of my tires got flat. Just glad I didn't stumble. I rested for a while to calm myself down so I can think clearly, just to slow down my heart's pounding moments (lol). I then looked for the problem, and saw my rear tire got struck by a 3 inches nail, no wonder it was sudden. Pulled out the nail and brought out my pump. I tried pumping air on it for a couple of minutes but I thought there just might be a lot of holes caused by the nail making my effort useless. So, I decided to run it flat. But my motorcycle had been strongly swaying to the left side, making it hard to control which was posting more danger for me, so I had to walk my motorcycle to the nearest vulcanizing shop which was more or less 3 kilometers away. For an hour or two, I had been walking, resting and pumping (just a thought that I might get lucky to pump some air to the wheel so I just had to ride it instead of walking it all the way). Guess what? No luck.
Upon arriving at a shop, still alive (thanks to Yahweh), the first thing that came to my mind was water...I needed water, before I lose my consciousness ha ha. The tube was replaced since it was severely damaged and the vulcanizer charged me 50 pesos for the labor. Well, I thought it was just fair, I troubled him for looking for a replacement tube and he used his personal motorcycle. And after all, it's nothing compared to what I've been through the day, something I wouldn't want to do again even if someone pays me.
Life is just full of uncertainties. Good thing, our Lord is always there to look after us, and guide our way. Or else, everything might be worse. I always believe that everything happens for a purpose, and it might be His way of protecting me from a far more danger ahead. It's a lucky day for me after all. Yahweh bless.
