I was a Bad Girl

Well What a day for a Sunday, It's been very cold, in the single digits, but we started the day off right anyway and got up and went to church, after church we went to see my dad and to make a long story short , later we went to the wrestling match and on the way there I get pulled over by the police, I don't have my seat belt on, and I'm going 60 in a 45 zone , I did get my seat belt on before he got to me, which he probably saw me doing but didn't mention it to me. I was hoping, no I was praying he would give me a warning (thinking now that's not a very good thing to pray for) but it didn't happen for me.

So now I am trying to talk myself into being Thankful that I got a speeding ticket and didn't cause an accident instead, I'm trying to be thankful that I have a car to drive or I wouldn't have gotten a speeding ticket cause I couldn't have even been going where I was going, I'm trying to be thankful that I can come up with the money to pay it even though there are many other places we could use it, I'm trying to be thankful that I only got ticketed for speeding and not for the seat belt violation.

It may take me a bit of time to let go of my anger, to get over the issue that I didn't see any reason why the street should have a 45 speed zone anyway. But that doesn't give me the right to break the law.

OK I'm ready to Let it go!! Pay the $90.00 and chalk it up as a learning experience. I think I'll wear my seat belt and try to slow down a bit!
