Miracle on Thanksgiving Day

Just had to mention a miracle that happened to me on the day after thanksgiving when the city makes its biggest load of cash off of the backs of hard working Americans from parking tickets.  This one sanitation worker had already written up the summons and pasted the neon green insult to injury sticker.  My wife and I approached him and just kindly expressed how disgraceful we thought it was of the city to do such a thing, without hesitation he requested the ticket, shook my hand and said, ”  Usually people come up to me cursing and screaming but you both approached me peacefully, Happy Thanksgiving”.  He ripped up the ticket and went off.

“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”    Proverbs 15:1

Thank you for making our day.
