Encounter with a stranger.

  Encounter with an acquaintance: I ran into the grandmother of one of my childcare children. For a couple of moments there I wanted to run and hide but I didnot. I looked at her and I realized that she was safe, she just wanted to spend a few minutes  talking to me about things of a general nature. I could certainly handle that. So I relaxed and I listened to what she had to say and I tried to respond appropriately, share some related stories from my own life. I asked questions related to what she had said, responded as best I could and listened to her comments. She got off the bus a  couple of stops later she smiled and waved goodbye I did the same. I was happy that I decided not to hide. with peace and friendship to all.
